The winter is a perfect time to get sunglasses. Spring is around the corner and the sun’s harmful rays are everywhere bouncing off snow and ice and into our delicate eyes. Sunglasses are great for reducing this glare that occurs when the sun reflects off of snow and ice. This glare is especially dangerous while driving. High quality sunglasses do an amazing job at dramatically reducing glare for safer, more comfortable vision in winter conditions. Exposure to UV radiation has been associated with cataracts and age-related macular degeneration of the eyes. The initial cornea damage that is done to the eye when exposed to UV rays develops, over time, into cataracts. But this is preventable with quality sunglasses purchased from our Briarwood Queens optical store.
Sunglasses prevent the eyes from straining, which aids in the reduction of eye related headaches. The amount of light that reaches the retina is controlled by the pupils. In bright light the pupils constrict to prevent too much light from reaching the retina but in really bright sunlight the pupils are unable to constrict enough and this causes us to have to squint. Squinting and the constriction of the pupils is what causes headaches and eyestrain. Sunglasses help to reduce this very bright light from reaching our eyes making our vision much less strained.
Lens Lab Express has many high quality, designer sunglass for our clients to choose from. As your go-to Briarwood Queens optical store we want to make sure your vision is clear, crisp and healthy in all seasons and all weather.
