Sunglasses in Murray, KY
Why Sunglasses Are Important
Sunglasses aren’t just an accessory — they’re crucial to your eye health. Harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation can wreak havoc on unprotected eyes.
Repeated, prolonged exposure to damaging light sources can cause headaches, discomfort or pain, and even lasting damage to your eyes. For example, your risk of macular degeneration, cataracts, and certain types of skin cancer around the eyes increases with long-term sun exposure. People who either are already at risk for certain eye diseases or who have had recent eye surgery have an even greater need for sun protection.
So instead of squinting, shielding your face, and feeling uncomfortable outside, take some time to invest in a nice pair of sunglasses that will keep you protected and looking great!
