Sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun

The most obvious benefit of wearing sunglasses is the protection they provide from the sun’s dangerous rays. Cancers of the eyelid make up about five to 10 percent of all skin cancers, and can lead to serious eye damage and face disfigurement. In addition to eyelid cancers, extended exposure to the sun can lead to cataracts and macular degeneration.

Sunglasses can help to reduce dry eyes

People who suffer from dry-eye syndrome often experience an increase in symptoms while in dry, windy climates. The environment can have a negative effect on your eyes due to weather, debris, and dust. Unfortunately, these elements are present year-round, not just during the summer. Sunglasses protect your eyes from things like wind and debris all year round.

Sunglasses can help to reduce eye strain

Squinting because of the sun is detrimental to your eyesight, but you are probably not aware that it can also damage your appearance. Prolonged squinting causes wrinkles on the sensitive skin around your eyes. And while there are products to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, there is no way to reverse the damage. So if you’re not concerned about the health of your eyes, perhaps looking younger longer will encourage you to wear sunglasses.
