Yep, it's true. Sunglasses aren't just a vital accessory in the sunny season. Although many of us are aware of the dangers the sun presents to our eyes during the summertime, we don't all realize that it is essential to take precautions in the winter as well.
In reality, the ultraviolet rays that beat down on you during the warm season still exist in the winter. And they could be a threat to your eyes' safety, especially when reflected off a bright snow-covered ground. Those of you who enjoy vacations that include snow-based activities should be especially careful because you'll spend an extended amount of time in the bright reflected sunlight which is potentially damaging to the eye. It's crucial to protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays.
So what's the optimal way to guard your eyes in the winter months? Eye doctors suggest wearing sunglasses with strong UV protection, so ensure that you purchase a durable pair of sunglasses that is suitable for the entire year. Buy a pair that is fitting and completely protects your eyes.
