5 Benefits of Wearing Sunglasses Regularly

When it comes to staying healthy, there’s more to it than simply increasing your fruit and veg intake or joining a gym. Eye care is a key factor to your overall health. Wearing sunglasses is definitely a must. So, it's a good idea to invest in a pair of high-quality sunglasses. With a wide selection of designer models, frames, lens colors and different shapes, you can kill two birds with one stone - protecting your eyes and being super stylish at the same time!

Why Do We Need to Wear Sunglasses?

As with skin, ultraviolet rays penetrate the eyes at different depths, causing permanent damage. Prolonged exposure to UV radiation can cause serious eye illnesses. Whether it’s winter or summer, cloudy or sunny, you’re always subject to ultraviolet exposure. Sand, wind, and residue would all also be able to bother your eyes or scratch the cornea, in some cases causing lasting harm.
Wear your sunglasses no matter what you’re doing, and you’ll be adding another layer of protection. Investing in a pair of UV protection sunglasses means investing in eye health!

When Should You Wear Sunglasses?

Some moments of the day and specific environments are more hazardous to your eyes than others. It's important to note that reflected sun, not just direct sunlight, can also damage your eyes. That means you can take in up to twice as much UV radiation if exposed to both direct sunlight and the reflected light, for example, when boating on open water on a sunny day. Ideally, you should wear sunglasses under all the following circumstances:

In the Afternoon Sun – Sunglasses help you see better in the afternoon sun by reducing glare and improving colors and contrast.

While Driving – Driving on sunny days can be challenging, as sunlight reflects off the hood of cars and other objects. Sometimes, the reflected light can even blind you momentarily and cause an accident. Wearing sunglasses can allow you to see better while driving, even during cloudy conditions.

At the Beach or by the Pool – Both sand and water can reflect sunlight.

On Bright, Snowy Days – Snow reflects 80 percent of the sun's UV rays. Even on chilly winter days, you should wear sunglasses that cover the lower part of the eyes.

Benefits of Using Sunglasses

1. Block Harmful UV Rays

As beautiful as sunshine can be, those UV rays actually cause a lot of harm to your eyes. Prolonged UV exposure to your retina can result in Macular Degeneration and cataract. Both eye conditions can make it hard for you to see, which can significantly decrease the quality of your life. So, keep your eyes protected and buy UV protection sunglasses like the ACE by BERYLL - the iconic designer pilot sunglasses also known as the James Bond sunglasses that even James Bond loves to wear. 

2. Clearer Vision & Less Headaches

Our eyes are naturally sensitive to light. When you do not wear sunglasses, you must squint when you’re outside on a sunny day. This squinting is uncomfortable and can fatigue the eyes. It can also lead to headaches and migraines. Wearing sunglasses while outdoors will help prevent discomfort.

3. Reduce Risk of Skin Cancer

Did you know that about 5 to 10% of all skin cancer is found on the eyelid? Sunglass frames are usually bigger than the eyes because their purpose is to protect the eye area, not just the eyes. This keeps the eyelids and the sensitive skin around the eyes from burning and reduces your chances of the deadly disease.

4. Prevent Cataracts & Glaucoma

Long-term exposure to the sun can increase the chances of cataracts and can also worsen the symptoms of Glaucoma, dry eye or even the retina can be damaged resulting in vision loss. Thankfully, reducing your chances of these conditions can be as simple as wearing sunglasses.

5. Reduce Signs of Aging

You read that right. Sunglasses aren't just a fashion statement. They protect your eyes from squinting, which can lead to future "crow's feet" or wrinkles. The skin around our eyes is much thinner compared to the rest of the face, which is why it’s one of the first areas those pesky wrinkles can appear. You can save on BOTOX injections simply by keeping yourself from squinting by wearing high quality sunglasses like the ZUMA from luxury lifestyle brand BERYLL!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Q.1 Should you wear sunglasses everyday?
