The Importance of Sunglasses: More Than Just Stylish

Importance of Sunglasses

Though most of us are aware of the need to wear sunscreen, we don’t always seem to consider the importance of sunglasses.

Sunglasses are more than just a fashionable accessory; they also offer vital protection from both sun damage and harmful glare, which can make it difficult to see the road ahead of you when driving.

Though most of us are aware of the need for sunscreen, we don’t always consider the importance of sunglasses. The sensitive skin around our eyes is particularly vulnerable to sun damage, which could lead to skin cancer, cataracts, and glaucoma.

Additionally, sunglasses can truly make it easier – and safer – to drive. The reflection of the sun on snow and sand can decrease your visibility, unless you are wearing sunglasses, and they can also act as a visible barrier from wind, dust, and dirt particles, which could get into your eyes while driving.

To be safe – be sure to purchase a pair of sunglasses that offers both 100% UVA and UVB protection and also fit comfortably on your face.

The popular Chevrolet SS sedan was already quite powerful – fueled by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine, capable of up to 415 horsepower – but now, rumor says that the Chevrolet SS will get even stronger in 2017.

According to GM Authority, the 2017 model will be the last version of the Chevrolet SS, but it will come with a turbocharged engine, making the sport sedan that much more fun to drive. The engine in question is said to be the same one that previously fueled the Corvette Z06 and the Cadillac CTS-V.
