Did you know the sun can damage your eyes – and your skin – even when it’s overcast?
When the sun shines we all reach for the factor 50 and our hats don’t we? But did you know the sun can damage your eyes as well as your skin? In fact, harmful UV rays are present when it’s overcast too. So it’s important to keep your eyes (and skin) protected at all times.
The sun gives off 3 types of UV rays – UVA, UVB and UVC. While UVC poses no threat to your eyes, both UVA and UVB can have short and long term effects on your eye health.
The best way to ensure your eyes are protected from the sun is to wear sunglasses offering 100% UVA and UVB protection. Here at Kings Opticians we have a range of stylish options for you to choose from.
Maui Jim boasts their own patented polarised lenses which you won’t find in any other spectacles. As well as filtering glare, these specialist lenses allow you to experience life as if you weren’t wearing sunglasses, with colours remaining vibrant.
