Sunglasses are much more than just a fashion statement. They protect our eyes from harmful UV rays, and picking the right pair can help prevent other serious problems. At Cascade Eyecare, our optometrists in Bend have quality sunglasses to provide optimal eye protection.

Reduce Your Exposure To UV Light

There is always a risk of exposure to UV light no matter what time of the year it is. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light can negatively impact your vision over time. It has been linked to a series of severe eye conditions such as macular degeneration, cataracts, or even sunburn of the eyes (referred to as photokeratitis.)

Protect Your Eyes From Exterior Elements

Sunglasses are excellent protection for keeping dirt and debris out of your eyes. They are especially helpful during winter when the humidity is low to prevent dry eyes.

Prevent Headaches and Eye Strain

One bad habit that many of us have when we are outside is squinting to make it easier to see. Your pupils are responsible for controlling the light that comes into your eyes. If the pupils cannot do this, you will squint. As a result, it is more likely for you to have severe headaches and you may also develop “crow’s feet”, which are wrinkles around the eyes.

Pick the Right Pair of Sunglasses With Our Family Eye Doctors

Our eye care specialists provide quality eyewear for the whole family. Sunglasses should provide 100 percent UV protection. You may also want to consider polarized lenses or ones that wrap around the eyes, especially if you are outside for a considerable amount of time. Either way, we will make sure you have the best sunglasses for your situation.
