It is now recommended that both adults and children wear sunglasses year-round in order to protect their eyes from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. This is because these rays of the sun have been associated with serious eye conditions such as cataracts and macular degeneration. People are now told that it is important to wear sunglasses whenever they are outside or even driving in their car. It is also important that children wear sunglasses whenever they are outside since children receive about 80% of their total exposure to the UVA and UVB rays of the sun by the time they reach age 18. Some of our customers prefer to purchase wraparound sunglasses which will even better protect their eyes since it will keep any of the sun’s rays from entering their eyes from the gap left between their face and the sunglasses.
