Sunglasses are your best protection against harmful UV rays.

Summer’s almost here. South africa’s Covid restrictions are relaxing and people are going out more and more. ALWAYS wear good quality sunglasses when you are outdoors. Look for sunglasses that block 100 percent of all UV rays. Your optometrist can help you choose the best sunglass lenses for your needs. To protect as much of the delicate skin around your eyes as possible, try at least one pair of sunglasses with large lenses or a close-fitting wraparound style.

The amount of UV protection sunglasses provide is unrelated to the color and darkness of the lenses. For example, a light amber-colored lens can provide the same UV protection as a dark gray lens. Your optician can verify that the lenses you choose provide 100 percent UV protection. In addition to sunglasses, wearing a wide-brimmed hat on sunny days can reduce your eyes’ exposure to UV by up to 50 percent.
