Sunglasses have long been considered the perfect warm-weather accessory. After all, a great pair of shades is just what your eyes need to protect them from the bright summer sun. But, what most people don’t realise is that sunglasses can be just as important, if not more, during the cold months of winter.
As we head into the darker and colder seasons it’s ironic that one of the biggest dangers is the sun due to glare which can cause compromised sight, premature ageing and eye fatigue. Whilst glare is dangerous all year round, during colder and darker months it is more so due to the sun sitting lower in the sky.
UV rays are also just as dangerous in our colder months as they are in summer so it’s important to keep our eyes protected at all times.
Just because the temperature drops, it doesn’t mean eye health and protection should become any less of a concern. If anything, a great pair of quality polarised sunglasses should be an essential part of your winter wardrobe
