Do we need sunglasses? Or are they just an affectation of rock stars like Bono from U2?  Well, sunglasses are way more than a fashion statement.

Our eyes, just like our skin, can be seriously damaged by the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.  The sun can cause cataracts, benign growths on the eye itself and cancer of the eyelids.  And, your eyes can even get sunburn – it’s called photokeratitis.  This condition is temporary, but extremely painful.

So, just as your skin needs sunscreen, your eyes need sun protection too.  Wide brimmed hats or baseball caps cut down about half of the nasty ultraviolet rays – so, use them!

When choosing sunglasses, look for styles that block at least 99% of the sun’s radiation AND screens out 90% of visible light.   Quality glasses will have this information.  Throw in gray tint for added protection – the best tint for true color appreciation – and your sunglasses are rockin’ and rollin’ with the best of them.  The take home message: sun glasses aren’t just for U2’s Bono, but for me and YOU, TOO!!
