Walnut Creek sunglasses
In the past, sunglasses were used for sun protection and as a fashion accessory. They were only available in non-prescription lenses. Today, that’s changed. In addition to sun UV protection and fashion, there are sunglasses that offer vision correction. There’s now an option to purchase prescription or non-prescription Walnut Creek sunglasses
The main job of Walnut Creek sunglasses is to protect the eyes from harmful UV sun rays. However, there is also a vision correction option. Walnut Creek sunglasses come in non-prescription and prescription lenses depending on your vision needs. Your regular eyeglasses would not be sufficient for UV sun protection. For UV protection, you would need a pair of prescription sunglasses. If you wear contacts, you could either purchase non-prescription sunglasses to wear over your contacts or you could wear a pair of prescription sunglasses without your contact lenses while your outdoors. If you don’t need vision correction at all, you should buy a pair of non-prescription sunglasses with good UV protection. Whether you need prescription lenses or not, in order to protect your eyes, you need to buy a high-quality pair of sunglasses that offer you the following benefits: UV protection, blue light protection, dark adaptation and comfortable vision. UV protection is very important for protecting your eyes. The sun’s radiation is very harmful to your eyes. It can cause cataracts, benign growths and cancer of the eyelids and skin around the eyes. Blue light protection is also very important since the blue and violet solar spectrum put people at risk for macular degeneration. The brightness and glare of the sun can make vision very uncomfortable. Sunglasses block the glare and therefore, provide comfortable vision. Spending as little as a few hours in the bright sun can make it difficult for your eyes to adapt quickly to nighttime and indoor light levels. This makes night driving dangerous. A quality pair of sunglasses will protect the eyes from the bright rays.
