Why Wear Sunglasses

Going out in the sun is usually associated with pleasure, well being and health. We look better and healthier with a tan, don’t we? But for eyes, there is no benefit from the sun, only danger!

  • 97% of people complain about bright light, glare and reflections on roads or shiny surfaces, and this glare slows reaction times when driving.
  • Glare also reduces the quality of your vision, altering colours and contrast and you lose out on seeing the world as it is.

Your eyes dont go brown in the sun, they are damaged. UV light damages the retina and is a causative factor in age related macula degeneration and 20% of cataracts. So protect them.

To do this best we wear and recommend Xperio polarized lenses:- polarized lenses completely block UV rays, providing 100% UV protection so reducing potential vision damage. And unlike regular sunglasses, they also virtually eliminate glare, allowing you to see more clearly and comfortably outdoors.

At Mark Darling Eyecare & Opticians we take this seriously and thats why we have a range of quality sunglasses that do all the above.
