Yes, your trip to the island paradise of Jamaica.
Now, before you hop aboard that airplane, let’s check off your vacation checklist:
- Passport... check!
- Ticket... check
- Bathing suit (or swimming trunks)... check
- Sunscreen... check
Okay then… you’re off!
Wait! You’ve forgotten an important (yet fashionable) item.
Yes, those stylish pair of sunglasses.
Benefits Of Sunglasses
For some folks, a pair of sunglasses is just another fashion accessory. However, there are several health benefits in wearing sunglasses.
Studies have shown that excess exposure to intense UV rays can cause a condition called photokeratitis (also called ‘sunburn of the eye’).
Individuals affected by this condition often experience watery eyes and pain in the eyes. Hence, it is imperative that we take the necessary precautions in protecting our eyes.
So, before you jet off to the islands, ensure that your pair of dark glasses are packed.
Sunglasses are the only way to protect our eyes from the intense rays of the sun. They act like sunscreen and gives the eyes an extra layer of protection.
Sunglasses Buying Guide
- Sunglasses with Ultraviolet (UV) Protection- Ensure that you purchase sunglasses that block out 99%-100% of ultraviolet rays.
Look for sunglasses that are labelled “UV 400”. These block out all rays that have wavelengths of up to 400 nanometres.
- Polarized lens- These don’t just make your environment darker. Polarized lens aid in reducing the glare from surfaces like water and glass.
- Tinted Lens- Some persons prefer sunglasses with tinted lens. Tinted lens help to absorb light as it passes through them.
Although people purchase tints based on personal preference, each tint has its own benefits. For example, gray lenses reduce brightness but they don’t distort colour.
On the other hand, rose lenses are more beneficial for persons who are active in water sports or other outdoor activities, due to the fact that objects against a blue or green background are better viewed.
- Avoid sunglasses that are too small - As stylish as they may appear, smaller sunglasses simply means that you have minimal protection from the harmful UV rays.
So, make sure you get sunglasses that offer more coverage.
- Don’t get sunglasses that are too dark- In reality, darker sunglasses do not equate to more sun protection. They make it hard to see and put your eyes under more work, thus, causing damages to eyes.
