Thinking of getting new sunglasses? Make sure they’re sun-safe!

Don't cast aside your plans of getting a new pair of sunglasses just because summer is over. Remember, even on rainy days or when the sky is at its cloudiest, ultraviolet (UV) rays are still present. When your eyes are exposed to these harmful rays for extended periods, the risk of vision impairment increases. 

But before you head out to get that new pair, take note of the things you should know when buying sunglasses for maximum eye protection.

UV protection

Make sure the sunglasses have a tag or sticker that indicates the highest protection from UV light ranging from 100% to 400%.


Go for sunglasses that sport the largest lenses possible as UV light can reach the eyes from all directions. Oversized or wrap-around glasses are your best choice to limit this light from entering from the side or below.


Polarized lenses reduce glare bouncing off reflective surfaces like water or roads. This makes activities like driving or hanging out on the beach more safe and fun.
