How important is it to protect your eyes from the sun?

It may seem like a strange time of year to think about sun damage, but did you

know that the low winter sun causes the most damage to your eyes? It is as important to protect your eyes from the sun as it is to wear sun cream on your skin. It is imperative to wear sunglasses with high UV protection all year round especially if you play outdoor sports. Our research would indicate that those sports replica omega

men and women with the greatest requirement for the correct sunglasses are golfers and cricketers. Prolonged exposure to the sun can lead to cataracts, burning of the surface of the eye, skin

cancer around the eyelids and abnormal growths in and around the eye.

"Every year some 16 million people in the world suffer from blindness due to a loss of transparency in the lens. WHO estimates suggest that up to 20 per cent of cataracts may be caused by overexposure to UV radiation and are therefore avoidable." World Health Organization replica horloges rolex

sveye fit bespoke sunglasses which are sport specific and cater to the individual

athlete's needs. In some cases a specialised lens is required for athletes with a light sensitivity problem. Through our experience working with professional golfers and cricketers we have seen how the correct fitting sunglasses and appropriate lenses can improve your game allowing the wearer to play with ease and comfort. Glare is a huge issue for golfers on bright days as it can distort vision temporarily, cause strain and fatigue and ultimately impair your vision. Wearing the correct lens reduces glare therefore reducing the chances of fatigue and strain. Glare can be reduced through bespoke lenses both specific to your visual needs and tailored to suit your sport.
