When you walk outside, it is almost second nature to put sunglasses on your face because of the brightness. However, there is another reason to wear sunglasses and that is to protect the health of your eyes. People wear sunscreen to protect themselves from the UV rays, so it makes sense to wear sunglasses to shield your eyes.
UVA Rays- This particular type of ray has longer wavelengths, which allow the beams to go through glass. The back of your eye is at risk when it comes to UVA rays because it can damage your macula and affect your central vision.
UVB Rays- Although all UV rays can be harmful to your eyes and skin, UVB rays are very dangerous. UVB rays can damage your cornea because the front of your eye absorbs the majority of this ray. You could develop certain types of cataracts over time from the damage.
UV 400- This type of protection can shield your eyes from both UVA and UVB rays. UV 400 can block up to 99% of both of these rays. All of our wholesale sunglasses have UV 400 protection, so you can be sure your eyes are protected from the sun’s glare when you are outside.
Now that you are aware of the dangers UV rays pose to your eyes, you should wear sunglasses whenever you are outside, even if it is cloudy because the UV rays can go through the clouds. Your eyes are important to us, which is why we only sell wholesale sunglasses with UV 400 protection. Start shopping our selection today.
