The truth about sunglasses

Sunglasses aren't just for fashion. They protect your eyes from the harmful effects of UV rays. Exposure to sunlight is the leading cause of cataracts around the world, and cataracts are the cause of blindness among elderlies.

That's why it's important to have at least a pair of sunglasses that come with UV protection. Don't hesitate to buy a good (expensive) one. Cheap sunglasses will only allow more UV rays to enter your eyes by widening your pupil without providing the essential UV protection. So technically, wearing cheap ones does more harm to your eye than not wearing any at all.

Spending on sunglasses is far more economical than having to spend for your cataract surgery that you'll eventually get if you don't start to take a good care of your eyes. So start wearing one now. You'll look cool too.
