Sunglasses & UV Protection
Did you know that UV radiation can be harmful even on cloudy days? As long as the day is somewhat bright, sunglasses are recommended to be worn outside to avoid UV ray damage. Rainy days likely do not need sunglasses, but if there’s a brief point of the day that has some sunshine, unprotected eyes for 10-15 minutes can still be harmed. Drivers, for instance, know to always keep a pair of sunglasses in their car just in case.
“Out of sight, out of mind.” In this case, the sun is out of sight! Keep your sunglasses nearby.
Top sunglass brands like Ray-Ban and Oakley may not be on the top of your list during the rainy season yet think again. An early start on buying a pair of sunglasses will ensure you’re well prepared for the end of spring and the occasional brighter days ahead.
