UV Rays In Winter

Did you know that UV rays from the sun are extremely harmful to the eyes even in the winter time? Without protective sunglasses, your eyes are exposed to the dangers of sun's radiation.

The Problem? Ultra Violet Radiation

The Solution: Sunglasses

To protect your eyes from harmful solar radiation, sunglasses should be worn anytime you are out in the sun and should block 100% of UV A and B rays. Close-fit, wrap around frames provide the best protection from the sun reaching your eyes through the top or sides of your sunglasses.
