Benefits Of Wearing Sunglasses Year Round

For many of us, when we think about sunglasses, bright, summer days come to mind. But the summer months are not the only time of year that we should be protecting our eyes from the damaging UV rays of the sun. In reality, to receive the benefits of sunglasses, and their ability to shield our eyes from ultraviolet rays, we should be wearing them all year around. At Mountain Eye Care, we provide Hamilton with high quality and prescription sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun, no matter the season!


Sunglasses afford your eyes not only protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays but also against the elements. Debris such as sand, dust, and pollen at this time of year, can lodge in the eye causing pain and temporary blindness. Guard your eyes against foreign debris with high -quality sunglasses offered at our Hamilton office.


Stereotypically the season for sunglasses, the sun is extremely powerful this time of year making many of us reach for our sunglasses before we leave home. Routine wear of sunglasses during the day will protect your eyes from the sun, but can also reduce headaches and migraines. Bright sunlight can trigger the onset of migraines, by obtaining protective eyewear from Mountain Eye Care, you can reduce the frequency and intensity of these painful occurrences during this sunny season.


An estimated 20% of all cataract (clouding of the eye’s lens causing blurred vision) cases are caused by extended UV exposure. This exposure can also worsen the symptoms of Glaucoma, another severe eye condition that can cause blindness.

Therefore, no matter the season, protecting your eyes against ultraviolet rays will help to keep your vision in peak condition, warding off illnesses that can cause blindness. Acquiring sunglasses from Mountain Eye Care will reduce the possibility of developing these vision-related illnesses.


Wearing sunglasses during winter is essential to your eyes’ overall health, as this season brings with it the risk of snow blindness. The reflective nature of snow, which can reflect 80% of the sun’s UV rays, causes the sun’s glare to burn the cornea, resulting in temporary blindness and acute pain.
