Proper eye care is essential to your overall health, and that includes protecting your vision by wearing the right sunglasses. The optometrists at Maple Ridge Eye Care are pros at keeping your eyes healthy by prescribing the right eyeglasses for you.
Just as the sun’s rays are dangerous for your body, so can they do major damage to your eyes. The sun’s ultraviolet, or UV, rays have potentially serious effects on your eyes and can result in any of these diseases:
Getting a yearly check-up by one of our optometrists is the first step to complete eye care. During the checkup, your doctor will determine if you need corrective eyeglasses to improve your sight. Whether or not you need corrective eyewear, you will still need a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes.
When you purchase sunglasses, always look for UVA and UVB sun ray protection. The glasses should protect you from 99 to 100 percent of these rays. In addition, the sunglasses should eliminate 75 to 90 percent of visible light. Another important factor to look for are polarized lenses: these will help eliminate glare, making it easier to see, especially while driving.
What if you wear corrective eyeglasses and you can’t see through regular sunglasses? To ensure eye care protection, we offer prescription sunglasses that contain your regular correction. You can also purchase transition glasses that darken when you go outside to protect your vision.
Proper eye care is as important as caring for every other part of your body. Call our Maple Ridge eye doctor at 604-463-4469 today to take the first step in your eye care.
