Sunglasses From Our Spring TX Optometrist

The sun's enormous radiant power is an integral part of life on Earth, from making plants grow to supporting human health. But there's one aspect of the sun's power that isn't so healthy -- ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Your eyes are highly vulnerable to this potential danger, so you need to make sure you're equipped with sunglasses that effectively defend against it. Your Spring TX optometrist here at Today’s Vision Rayford and Riley Fuzzel, Dr. Mehta or Dr. Patel, can help you select high-quality sunglasses that provide full UV protection.

A Critical Form of Protective Eyewear

Sunglasses have long been associated, not just with glare reduction, but also with fashion and style. But their greatest value is the protection they can offer against ultraviolet rays. The ultraviolet end of the radiation spectrum, which resides below the realm of visible light, comes at us in a few different forms: UVA, UVB and UVC. UVC rays get absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere, with UVA and UVB make it to the ground, where they cause skin and eye problems such as:

  • Photokeratitis - UV rays don't just sunburn the skin; they can also sunburn the surface of the eye, causing pain, redness, swelling and sometimes vision problems
  • Cataracts - Cataracts may be caused or accelerated by UV exposure, making the lens increasingly opaque, interfering with your vision and color perception and possibly leading to blindness.
  • Cancer - Eyelid cancer is a common form of skin cancer. Even the eyes themselves can develop cancer due to UV exposure.
  • Macular degeneration - UV may play a role in making the retina of the eye more vulnerable to age-related macular degeneration, a cause of severe vision loss.

Good sunglasses are designed to filter out UV rays even as they reduce the amount of total incoming light. This not only allows you to see more clearly and easily on dazzlingly sunny days; it could also spare you from serious health problems.

Prescription Sunglasses at Today’s Vision Rayford and Riley Fuzzel

Unfortunately, you can't tell how much UV protection sunglasses offer based on how dark they are --and many of the cheap models widely available don't protect the eyes adequately. That's why you should get your sunglasses here at Today’s Vision Rayford and Riley Fuzzel. Your eye doctor can fit you with prescription sunglasses, as well as non-prescription clip-on and wraparound eyewear, that block 99 to 100 percent of all UV rays. (These are often labeled "UV 400" sunglasses.) If you plan on spending lots of time in the sand, on the water or driving over asphalt roads, your eye doctor may also recommend polarized lenses that filter out the most annoying glare from reflections.
