In addition to offering superb eye health services, Sanderson Eye carries a fantastic collection of high-end designer sunglasses, which One Posh Closet is proud to showcase on our website. Read on to learn about the important role sunglasses play in the long-term health of your eyes in this message from Sanderson Eye Optical Department Manager, Jolean Dresbach.
“Sunglasses are much more than a summer fashion statement- they are a necessity to preserve the health of your eyes. Don’t get us wrong, sunglasses should tie your entire look together. They are undoubtedly the first thing others will see when they look at you. For this reason, they should reflect your style whether it’s funky, sophisticated, understated, or brighter than the sun itself. In short, they should reflect who YOU are. However, it would be short-sighted to turn a blind eye to the health benefits high-quality sunglasses deliver.
The sun can cause serious damage to your eyes, and sunglasses are your single best defensive mechanism. Well-made protective eye wear can protect your eyes from 99-100% of harmful UVA and UVB rays. Did you know the outer layer of your eye can get a sunburn, much like your skin? A few hours in the sun without sunglasses can make it more difficult for the eyes to adapt to darkness, and can impair your ability to drive during night hours. Eventually, prolonged sun damage can lead to cataracts, benign growths, macular degeneration, photokeratitis and other issues that can cause temporary or permanent vision loss and even skin cancer on the eyelids.
Everyone should get regular eye exams. Eye deterioration from the sun can easily be spotted during a routine exam, but most people only go every four to five years instead of the recommended once a year. If caught in time, future eye damage can be prevented.”
If you need prescription lenses in your beautiful designer frames, no problem! One Posh Closet and Sanderson Eye Specialists can add your prescription to any of the sunglasses. Just purchase your frames, then send a pdf of your prescription to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll take care of the rest.
