Headed to the beach? Packed your sunscreen and hats? Be sure not to forget your sunglasses. Sunglasses are a necessary part of protecting your body from the harmful effects of UV. Not just any sunglasses, but sunglasses that are labeled as UV Protective, preferably more than 97%.

How can you be sure your sunglasses are more than 97% UV protective? Be sure to purchase them from a qualified eye care practitioner who can demonstrate their UV characteristics with a UV meter. It is also recommended to purchase Polarized lens which are naturally UV protective.

  1. I feel a lot of people don’t realize how important this is! Not wearing uv-protected lenses can lead to a whole host of eye problems. Make sure kids have their own sunglasses too!
