For healing 

If you had any surgery to correct your vision, you should ensure you wear sunglasses to protect your eyes and give them time to heal. UV rays can damage your eyes and delay recovery. Anyone who’s had cataract surgery should absolutely wear sunglasses to protect their eyes. Most intraocular lenses do not provide proper UV protection to the vulnerable aging eye.

To prevent wrinkles, headaches, and fatigue 

A high amount of sunlight entering your eyes can cause migraines and headaches. Your pupil controls the amount of light that enters your eye. When the pupil is unable to keep the light away, you squint to limit the incoming sunlight. The muscle fatigue caused due to squinting leads to headaches and fatigue. With squinting, you are also prone to develop crow’s feet and wrinkles. Sunglasses provide you with an additional shade of protection that can prevent wrinkles.

For UV protection 

Exposure to a high amount of ultraviolet rays, such as UVA and UVB, can damage your cornea, lens, and macula. Eyes are sensitive to glaring UV light which can lead to serious eye problems. 

For a sense of style 

Not only can a good pair of sunglasses provide you with vision correction and protection, but they can also provide you with a stylish accessory.
