Sunglasses at Moody Eyes

Woman with sunglasses

Most people think of sunglasses as the ideal fashion accessory or as protection that is only required at the height of summer’s sun rays. However, sunglasses can do much more than make you look good. The following are some of the top reasons your eye doctor in Indianapolis recommends wearing sunglasses while outdoors all year round:

Comfort

When the sun is shining intensely, it is difficult to be fully comfortable outdoors without sun protection. The glint, reflection, and glare of sunlight cause squinting, eye watering and general discomfort. Wearing sunglasses eliminates these factors of discomfort and allows for a more enjoyable time outdoors.

Safety

When sun glare is intense, vision is inevitably impaired. It is more difficult to see clearly and accurately, and this becomes a major factor for those who are driving, performing sports or operating heavy machinery.

UV and Blue Light Protection

UV protection is the most important reason for wearing sunglasses to defend against the sun’s most intense rays. The sun’s UV rays are the ones can damage the eyes and lead to sunburn, cataracts, macular degeneration and even skin cancer.

In addition to UV light, blue light and well as violet frequencies from the sun can also be problematic. Long-term exposure to these rays can contribute to macular degeneration and related problems.

Long-Term Eye Health

Sunglasses also help to protect the eyes from sunburn – yes, the eyes themselves can become sunburned just like the skin around them. Wearing sun protection over the eyes can also help to slow down or avoid eye conditions like macular degeneration and cataracts.

Protection Against Skin Cancer

Most people are aware of the importance of general sun protection of all areas of the skin. Wearing sunscreen and protective clothing are the best defense against skin cancer. However, most people aren’t aware that the skin around the eyes, as well as the lids, happen to be the most prone to developing skin cancer. Sunglasses offer UV protection for this highly sensitive area from the sun’s most harmful rays.

As you can see, sunglasses aren’t just for summer – although this is probably the most important time of year to wear them. Sunglasses should ideally be worn anytime the eyes are exposed to the sun, and even during winter weather and cloudy days because the sun still penetrates through the clouds

Testimonial

Very, very satisfied with my visit! I recently moved to Indianapolis and needed to get some new glasses and try contacts for the first time. The office was easy to make appointments with, and the doctor (Amy) was EXTREMELY friendly and knowledgeable. I was able to get the contacts I needed, as well as lenses put into a pair of glasses I purchased online. -- All at an affordable price.
