Why Wear Sunglasses

Sunglasses are important for a variety of reasons. They are essential for preventing sun damage to your eyes while at the same time, improving your vision and visual comfort. They can also help you make a unique fashion statement.

Our eyes are affected by exposure to the rays of ultraviolet radiation. Overexposure to UV light contributes to the development of cataracts, retinal damage and other eye problems. Experts report that as much as 80% of UV damage to our eyes is done before the age of 18, making it even more important all of us to start protecting our eyes at an early age (Note: see chart for more specifics).

Sunglasses also serve as a shield against the glaring light of the sun and providing you with better visual clarity. You can choose anything from a soft tint to a dark, polarized lens.

Polarized Lenses are unique sunglasses that not only reduce the amount of light that reaches your eyes but actually contains a special filter that blocks the intense reflected light, thus reducing glare.

For people who are looking for the most ideal vision in all lighting conditions, the newDriverwear lenses were made for you. Combining two of the most advanced technologies found in the eyeglass industry today, transition lenses and polarization, Drivewearlenses maximize useful light and minimize glare and excess light. Driverwear lenses create the most optimal visual environment for you in almost any situation.
