Their future's so bright they've gotta wear shades.

Established by The Vision Council, National Sunglasses Day on June 27 serves as an annual reminder to safeguard the eyes before venturing outdoors. Sunglasses are one of the most popular, affordable summer accessories, but having the right sunglasses is critical to protecting vision health from UV rays and summer dangers.  Just as UV and UVB radiation can affect the skin, the sun can be equally damaging to your optical health. Overexposure can lead to cancer of the eyelids, cataracts or macular degeneration.

“Sunglasses are a great way to show your style,” said Dr. Nogueras, Vice President of Professional Services for For Eyes.  “But there’s a lot more to finding the right pair.  You need to have UV protection, whether for children or adults, and the right lens options for your summer activities.  Ultra-violet rays can be very dangerous to your unprotected eyes, ranging from ocular cancer and vision loss.”

The American Optometric Association recommends choosing lenses that block out 99 to 100 percent of UV-A and UV-B rays and screen 75 to 90 percent of visible light. It’s important to match lenses color and keep the surfaces smooth and distortion-free.

Depending on the activity, there are plenty of outdoor options when choosing protective eyewear. Polarized lenses reflect glare. Gray lenses provide proper color recognition. Blue-blocking lenses are a great choice for distinguishing long-distance objects or when boating, hunting or skiing. Photochromic lenses adjust for the amount of light. Wraparound frames can offer a greater defense from UV rays.
