Most people wear sunglasses only during summer to protect their eyes from sun damage. But did you know that wearing sunglasses in winter is also crucial? UV rays are just as harmful in the winter as they are in summer, and they can cause severe eye problems such as cataracts. It is advised that people should wear sunglasses all year round, no matter the season. We have a wide variety of sunglasses to choose from at Lens n Specs in Schaumburg. Dr. Harry can guide you through choosing the right glasses that suit your needs and preferences.


1. UV Protection

The sun is great because it gives us light and warmth, but it's also very harsh. UV rays can cause serious damage to your eyes and lead to a variety of problems, such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and glaucoma. Sunglasses provide the needed protection to keep your eyes safe and healthy. As we mentioned earlier, don't wear them only during summer; wearing them even during winter is just as important.

2. Reduced Glare

Glare from the sun can make it difficult to see clearly. Sunglasses are designed to reduce glare and make it easier for you to perform day-to-day activities. They make it easier for you to read, drive, and do other things without being bothered by the glare. During winter when light is reflecting off various surfaces, such as snow and ice, sunglasses can be a lifesaver. Glare is also known for causing headaches. If you often find yourself getting headaches, it might be due to the glare. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce the chances of getting headaches.

3. Protection from the Elements

During winter, many environmental factors can impact your eyes and affect your vision. For example, wind and snow can cause dry eyes and irritation. Sunglasses protect your eyes from these elements and keep them healthy and comfortable even during the winter. You also have to worry about dirt, dust, and other debris getting into your eyes and causing irritation.
