Why Should You Wear Sunglasses - Become a Warby Parker affiliate and enjoy great income opportunities
So far I was thinking that sunglasses are a fashion statement that should only be worn by
Sunglasses or sun cheaters protect your eyes from bright sunlight and high energy visible light. Do you know that even prehistoric people wore
sun glasses? The Inuit people wore
flattened walrus ivory glasses. When exposed to sunlight the eyes suffer badly.
It may cause sunburn of the eye which can lead to loss of vision for 48 hours. The Surfer’s eye is a condition which causes benign growth on eye surface which can itch, swell or become irritable.
The consequences of not wearing sunglasses can also lead to cataracts, age related macular degeneration and cancer of the eye and eyelid.
Sun glasses improve the comfort of vision and increases clarity by reducing the amount of glare. Now, you have to protect the eyes from UVA and UVB radiation. Harvard scientists recommend some really useful
glasses. The cosmetic variety has light colored
tints and blocks about 70% of UVB rays 20% of UVA and 60% of visible light.
The UVA rays are responsible for skin tanning and ageing of skin. The UVB rays cause sunburn and skin cancer. The sun glasses used for general purpose has medium to dark lenses it blocks 95% of UVB rays and 60% of UVA and 60-90% of visible light. The special purpose sunglasses have extremely dark lenses and blocks 99% of UVB rays 60% of UVA rays and 97% of visible light.
I hope the scientists have done a great job by advising on the type of glasses to wear. Hope you are on your way to the market to buy yourself a nice pair of sunglasses. And be careful not to disappear in thin air.
