What is national sunglasses day all about?
The sunglasses you wear to the beach, for hiking or just for a sunny day are not there just to make you look fashionable, but there is a deep-rooted reason embedded within them. The Vision Council aims to spread the awareness of how important a pair of sunglasses are and how they can protect your eyes from getting impaired, by blocking away the harmful effects of the ultraviolet rays released from the sun.
The campaign was launched by the Vision Council in 2017 to educate people about the terrible effects of overexposure to sunlight, more specifically – Ultraviolet Rays (UV Rays). A good quality pair of sunglasses have UV-filtering lenses that protect our eyesight when outdoors.
What are the harmful effects of UV rays?
There are 2 types of UV Rays:
UV-A rays can impair your core and inner vision. UV-B rays can damage the light-sensitive cornea of your eyes. The result of being exposed to sunlight with unprotected eyes can be irreversible and may lead to vision impairment. Some of these effects are retina regeneration, cataracts, corneal sunburn, and the list is endless.
But why to go through all this when you could protect your eyes just with the right pair of sunglasses?
