Just because the winter months are approaching, does not mean that you should not wear sunglasses to protect your eyes. In fact, eye doctors now agree that people should wear Jackson sunglasses year-round in order to protect their eyes from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun.
We hope you will visit us at Spare Pair Vision Center to purchase new Jackson sunglasses which will protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. These sunglasses can be either prescription or nonprescription sunglasses. If you want to get new prescription sunglasses, our optometrist can provide you with a comprehensive eye exam so that you will have an up-to-date prescription to go with your new sunglasses. We offer an exciting and large selection of sunglass frames, as well as offer different lenses to go with them. Our optician will work with you to make sure that you get the right lenses which offer 100% protection from the UVA and UVB rays of the sun. There are also lens coatings which can provide this for your sunglasses, as well. Even if your eyes are being over exposed to the sun, you may not be aware of this until later on in life when you develop cataracts or macular degeneration. Early exposure to the sun has now been associated with the development of both these eye diseases later on in life. This is why it is recommended that people wear protective sunglasses year-round whenever they are outside, or even driving in their car. It is also recommended that children wear sunglasses whenever they are outside. Since a child’s eyes are more transparent, they are even more susceptible to the harmful sun’s rays. Studies have shown that children’s eyes receive over 80% of their lifetime UVA and UVB exposure by the time they reach age 18.
