Sunglasses are not just worn as part of an outfit; their main purpose is, in fact, protecting our eyes from the potentially damaging effects of UV rays. While many of us forgo wearing sunglasses outside, this can actually be detrimental to our health. Here are a few reasons why: 

Sunglasses can prevent health problems later in life 

While we all love getting outside and soaking up some sun, there is such a thing as getting too much sun.Sunlight contains UV rays, and while in small doses UV rays are harmless, overtime they can cause serious health consequences, including but not limited to: 

  • Skin cancer 
  • Macular degeneration 
  • Cataracts 
  • Glaucoma 
  • Snow blindness 

Sunglasses, meanwhile, can block these UV rays, preventing these health conditions from arising either now or later into the future. 

They protect you from the elements 

Sunglasses can not only protect you from UV rays, but also from dirt, dust, and debris that might be kicked up as you’re going about your day. Whether you’re skiing on the slopes or walking outside on a windy day, sunglasses can prevent any stray materials from getting into your eyes and causing damage. 

You’ll see more with them than without them 

When you’re out in the great outdoors, you want to see as much of your surroundings as possible. Glare from the sun can limit visibility (especially during the winter, as the snow will reflect sunlight), but sunglasses can cut down on this, helping you see a clearer and sharper image. 

Sunglasses prevent headaches and migraines 

One of the leadingheadaches and migraine triggers is sunlight. Migraine sufferers tend to suffer from photophobia, a neurological issue that causes increased light sensitivity. As such, standing out in the bright sun all day is bound to trigger photophobia, which in turn triggers a headache and migraine. Sunglasses, then, can help to cut down on how much bright light reaches your eyes.
