Prevent damage from ultraviolet radiation

We all know that overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause serious skin problems and sunburn. But are we all aware that UV rays can equally harm the eyes?

Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays has been associated with significant eye problems, including cataracts, macular degeneration, pinguecula, pterygium, photokeratitis, among other more serious pathologies.

To protect your eyes from harmful solar radiation, you should wear sunglasses that block 100% of UV rays. Even on cloudy days, it is very important to wear sunglasses, because harmful UV rays pass through cloudiness.

Visit our stores and seek advice from our professionals to help you choose the best solution to protect your eyes this summer!
