It is a universal truth that sunglasses make you look cooler. Whether you’re a pop star or popping out to the shops, a pair of sunnies adds the wow factor to any outfit. More importantly, sunnies can help protect your eyes from the damaging effects of the sun’s penetrating UV rays.
However, that’s only true if you buy – and wear – the right kind. There are a lot of myths surrounding sunglasses, so let Vision Works set the record straight.
Myth: Sunglasses are optional
Sunglasses are in fact a necessity if you want to prevent corneal, and retinal damage to your eyes, as well as the delicate surrounding skin, from UV radiation. One can be easily prone to developing pterygiums which are growths on the cornea, early onset cataracts, as well as damage to the retina, the sensory layers at the back of the eyes.
Myth: Designer sunnies are best
Myth: Size isn't everything
Myth: Scratch and sniff
Myth: Any pair cuts the glare
Myth: Sunglasses come with an expiry date
