The Importance of Sunglasses During Winter

The Importance of Sunglasses During Winter

In the winter, your eyes need the protection of sunglasses just as much as they do during the summer. If you need regular sunglasses or prescription sunglasses to protect your eyes, contact our team at North Bay Eye Associates with offices in Healdsburg, Petaluma, Sonoma, and Santa Rosa.

Brightness Protection

It may seem as if the sun is a lot brighter in the summer, but it is just as bright all year long. It may feel brighter during the summer because of the heat, but it is bright in the winter and can damage your vision. Wearing sunglasses protects your eyes from UV rays, which can be damaging to your eyesight. These UV rays also cause the skin around your eyes to age faster. Sunglasses provide excellent protection for your eyes and the skin around them.

Debris Protection

The wind in winter can be just as dangerous as the sun’s UV rays. The wind can cause less moisture to remain in your eyes, and this can lead to a condition called dry eye. Wind also brings with it the possibility of tiny particles of debris flying into your eyes. This can scratch your eyes and cause both damage and discomfort. Sunglasses can protect you from this debris and allow less wind to affect your eyes.

Get Prescription Sunglasses

If you don't like to wear sunglasses because they interfere with your eyeglasses, you can get prescription sunglasses to make the transition easier. They are perfect for winter, summer, or any time of the year. If you live in Healdsburg, Petaluma, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, or the surrounding areas, contact one of our offices to schedule an appointment at North Bay Eye Associates. We will provide an eye exam, update your prescription, and provide some options for prescription sunglasses for every style and budget.
