Mountain Eye Care Carries Prescription Sunglasses
As the country gets ready to brace itself for the oncoming winter months, Hamiltonians begin their preparations to outlast the cold and the snow. Make sure you are prepared when the snow falls, with our prescription sunglasses at Mountain Eye Care.
Read on to learn why protecting your eyes is so important during the winter months.
Snow Blindness is a very real problem in Canada. Medically known as Photokeratitis, this ailment can arise when our eyes are overexposed to the sun’s UV rays, causing a painful temporary loss of vision. As the ultraviolet radiation bounces off the highly reflective vast amount of snow, they can literally cause a sunburn on our cornea. To prevent this temporary blindness from happening it is crucial to wear sunglasses in the winter months, especially during sunny and snowy days.
Snow can reflect more than eighty percent of the UV rays that the sun emits. If you are partaking in winter sports such as skiing, snowboarding, mountain climbing, and the like, these activities usually take place at a higher altitude than normal. As a result, the UV rays are even stronger, meaning that winter recreational activities can double your chances of contracting Photokeratitis.
So if you are planning on trekking through the snowy mountains, or even taking a stroll through the park, make sure you stop at Mountain Eye Care for your very own prescription sunglasses! Protect your eyes from the severe possibility of painful vision loss, with our vast collection of designer sunglasses and eyewear.
At Mountain Eye Care, we carry a huge selection of prescription sunglasses so you won’t have to worry about being caught out by the intense UV rays bouncing off the white snow this winter.
