Protecting Your Eyes from the Sun | IRIS
I am sure most of you who are reading this are also extremely happy that the sun has finally come out, after long months of rain and snow in Toronto. Last week, I was fortunate to find a beautiful getaway cabin located in a remote area in Quebec for my summer vacation. As a content creator, getting away from all of it in a cabin deep in the woods to reconnect and reflect is important.
When the sun is out, I am sure everyone gets super excited and starts planning on all the summer activities - the last thing on their mind is the importance of picking the right sunglasses. Sunglasses are a great fashion accessory, but one thing people tend forget is that their most important job is to protect your eyes from the sun's UV rays. The benefit of wearing a great pair of sunglasses not only for eye protection, you will also look good while doing it!
Thanks to IRIS, I was able to pick the perfect pair of sunglasses for my summer trip to Quebec. I was able to do so much activities such as canoeing and fishing under the sun while looking absolutely good in them. Other than protecting eye health, wearing sunglasses in the sun allows me to see better and enjoy the outdoors more!
Below are some helpful tips from the IRIS specialists for buying the right sunglasses:
1. Make sure the sunglasses have a sticker or a tag that says 100% protection against UV rays or UV 400 nm.
2. Large oversized or wrap-around sunglasses will provide more coverage by reducing the amount of UV rays entering from the side of the sunglasses, and help protect the delicate skin around your eyes.
3. Choose sunglasses with polarized lenses.
4. Consult with your optometrist and optician on the best possible sunglasses for you and your specific needs. Find your next pair of sunglasses at an IRIS store near you!
