Winter Eye Protection – It’s Not Just About the Sun

It’s important to wear sunglasses during the winter months to protect eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays. However, it isn’t only the sun that you need to worry about. Harsh winter weather can also irritate the eyes. Cold, blowing winds and dry air can make your eyes sensitive and irritated. Children and infant’s delicate eyes are particularly affected by harsh winter weather.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that you only need winter eye protection when you’re doing winter sports. Winter’s mercurial weather means that clouds can give way to bright sunlight at any minute, and gusty winds can kick up at any time. We suggest keeping sunglasses handy for you and your children in the car, diaper bag or backpack so you’re always prepared.

Wrap-style glasses like these extreme sports glasses are perfect for any harsh weather winter brings.
