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.
