Why Sunglasses Are More Than Just a Fashion Statement

Published: 2016-10-17

Celebrities around the world wear sunglasses to movie premieres, music concerts, and other high-profile events, making them a major fashion accessory. However, the function of sunglasses is just as important as their style. In fact, sunglasses can prevent blinding and even deadly health conditions.

Research points to a strong connection between eye diseases and sun exposure. Strong evidence exists between the UV exposure and the progression of macular degeneration. Cataracts gradually cause vision to become cloudy and when untreated, leads to blindness. Wearing proper UV-blocking sunglasses drastically lowers the amount of harmful light that can cause cataracts to reach the eyes. Like cataracts, melanomas can arise as the result of too much sun, and not only the area around the eye but also inside the eye is vulnerable to overexposure to sunlight. With consistent sunglasses use, you can minimize your risk of skin cancer around the eye area.

Just like you wouldn’t go to the beach or lake without your sunscreen, don’t forget to bring your shades!

Schaeffer Eye Center offers a wide selection of protective and fashionable sunglasses for Birmingham area residents. To view our sunglasses, visit our office today! You can also call us at (877) 223-9776 to learn more about our glasses or to make an eye exam appointment.
