The Importance of Sports Glasses

  • UV Protection – Being exposed to UV rays over time could cause cataracts, growths on your eyes, and photokeratitis.

    Photokeratitis is a painful eye condition that occurs when your eye is exposed to invisible rays of energy called ultraviolet (UV) rays, from the sun.

    Photokeratitis is like having a sunburned eye. This condition affects the thin surface layer of the cornea, the clear front window of the eye, and the conjunctiva, which is the clear tissue covering the white part of the eye and the inside of the eyelids.

  • Blue Light Protection – I am sure you have heard about all the blue light that we get from electronic devices, but the sun is actually the producer of the most blue light.
  • Glare Protection – Wearing sunglasses offer protection from the sun’s bright glare. Polarized sunglasses offer even better glare protection than standard tinted sunglasses.
  • Children Need Them Too – Children should definitely be wearing sunglasses to protect those developing eyes. Children’s eyes are still developing and might not do as good a job at blocking things such as blue light, therefore it is even more important that children wear sunglasses to protect their eyes.
  • Drive Safer – Wearing sunglasses while you are driving will reduce the glare from the sun and improve your vision so you can drive safer.


  • Photochromic sunglasses vs. polarized sunglasses

    Polarized and photochromic sunglasses are both helpful for protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. But, since polarized sunglass lenses also reduce light glare, they can help you see more clearly while driving, playing sports or fishing — you may even be able to peer below the reflective surfaces of water.

    Meanwhile, photochromic lenses turn your clear (or nearly clear) eyeglasses into sunglasses. They automatically get darker, so you don’t have to worry about switching back and forth from indoor to outdoor.
