Urias Eyecare: Sunglasses

With the summer months in full swing, there are many people who are looking to spend as much time as possible outdoors. While everyone should take advantage of every opportunity to go outside, it is just as important for people to ensure that they have the proper protection. This means hydrating appropriately, applying sunscreen, and wearing sunglasses. There are numerous benefits that come with sunglasses, and our team at Urias Eyecare located in the Midland area is here to tell everyone why.


UV Radiation from the Sun Can Damage Your Eyes

While sunshine is the sign of a good day to come, this bright light can also be damaging to your eyes. UV radiation from the sun can damage you retinas. Damage caused by this light might not be reversible, leaving permanent deficits on a person’s vision. This damage can also occur before someone even notices that their eyes have been harmed.

Sunglasses Are Used to Protect the Eyes

In order to protect your eyes from the damaging rays of the sun, it is important to invest in sunglasses. There are multiple options for sunglasses on the open market, but not all pairs are created equally. It is important for everyone to protect their eyes using 100 percent UV blocking lenses. The lenses of these keep out harmful UV radiation, preserving a wearer’s vision and helping to prevent eye damage.

Transition Lenses are Also Available

One of the most common complaints people have about sunglasses is that switching between their prescription eyeglasses and their sunglasses is a hassle. Transition lenses solve this problem. These are lenses made specifically to react to high light levels, automatically darkening in order to reduce eye strain in bright light. Investing in transition lenses is perhaps the most convenient way to both protect your eyes and correct your vision.

Trust a Trained Optometrist

Any eye doctor can tell you that it’s important to protect your eyes from harmful UV exposure with a pair of UV blocking sunglasses.

We know Dr. Urias will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else."
