At Runaways, we provide a wide range of styles for sunglasses so that people will easily be able to pick out a pair that works perfectly for them. One thing that we are committed to providing amongst all of these various styles is UV protection. We offer UV 400 sunglasses to make sure that with any style someone might like, they will also be receiving the benefits of UV protection at the same time. Since this is something that truly matters to us, we wanted to explain things a little more here so you will understand why it is so important to wear UV protection sunglasses.
What Makes UV 400 Sunglasses Special?
Before we can get into what makes UV 400 sunglasses so important for daily wear, we have to explain what they are and what they mean for you. UV sunglasses are designed to shield your eyes from the effects of harmful UV rays. Both UVA and UVB rays are dangerous to your eye health and should be avoided whenever possible. Sunglasses with 400 UV protection can block the effects of ultraviolet rays by reflecting them back and keeping them from ever reaching your eyes. The number 400 represents the measure of protection and basically means that it blocks off 100% of UV rays, so you can feel safe and confident under the sun.
Now that we have that covered, let’s get into some of the exact reasons why you would want to wear UV 400 sunglasses regularly.
Protect Your Eye Health
First and most importantly, wearing UV 400 protection sunglasses can help you to avoid a long list of eye health concerns, some of which are incredibly serious. If your eyes are overexposed to ultraviolet rays, they may develop a number of conditions such as cataracts, pterygium, macular degeneration, photokeratitis, and pinguecula. Not only would you have to be concerned about these frustrating eye conditions, but you would also have to worry about skin or eye cancer forming. And yes, all of this can develop because your eyes were exposed to UV rays. You may not see these things forming right away, but they can slowly develop over the years and become serious issues you will have to deal with eventually.
Improve Your Driving
Another way that consistently wearing your UV 400 sunglasses can help your safety is by improving your vision while driving. This helps you in a very different way than with your eye help, but it holds up nonetheless. Wearing your sunglasses while driving during the day can help to improve your vision so you are not losing sight of the burning sun. This benefits both you and everyone else on the road with you since you will be able to drive more smoothly and comfortably without the light hurting your eyes. Turn it into a habit to wear your glasses while you drive during the day and it will start to feel like second nature.
Fight Off Wrinkles
One of the physical effects of sun exposure around the eye area is that it can contribute to premature aging. With too much sunlight around your eyes, you may start to notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles sooner than you expected or with more definition. The skin around the eyes is delicate and different from the rest of the skin on the face. It is much more vulnerable and will show damage in the form of premature fine lines and wrinkles showing up. Wearing UV protection sunglasses can shield not only your eyes but the skin around your eyes as well as long as they are hidden behind the lenses.
Add to Your Outfit
While this does not impact your physical wellbeing as the previous points did, personal style does make a difference for many. At the very least, having protective sunglasses that suit your style and coordinate with your outfits, may encourage you to wear them more often and for longer durations of time. Find sunglasses that you enjoy the look of, and just keep wearing them.
