A common misconception is that sunglasses are better to wear exclusively in the warmer months. However, sunglasses are a wardrobe staple that can be worn at anytime of the year! Not only are they fashionable, but they also have wonderful benefits when it comes to protecting your eyes from the winter weather.
#1- Ultraviolet Rays
Ultraviolet rays are actually doubled in the wintertime due to the rays reflecting off snow. Polarization is an optical filter that can block these light rays while allowing those vital to our eyesight pass through. This protective filter offers a number of benefits including glare reduction, improved clarity, enhanced contrast, better color perception, and less eye strain. This is particularly helpful while driving during sunset hours when light bounces intensely off other the snow and other cars! Here are some selections from our polarized collection.
In addition to protecting your eyes when it comes to eyestrain, sunglasses also protect your eyes from the winter weather. Without the proper protection, high winter winds, snow, ice, and other debris can all have damaging effects on your eyes. Dry, irritated eyes are also most common in the winter months. So don’t forget to throw one of these popular sport pairs before you go out and hit the slopes!
Although not all of our sunglasses are polarized, they all come with standard 400UV protection. So if you’re just trying to get back to basics this winter, make sure you check out some of the stylish options below! However, if you are ready to step up your game with the added benefits of polarized sunglasses – check out our Signature & Elite lines. Stay warm!
