Sunglasses are no longer just for fashion...

Although sunglasses can be fabulous fashion accessories, they are extremely important when it comes to your eye health. Sunglasses provide protection for both your eyes and the sensitive skin around your eye area.  While shopping for sunglasses, you should look for sunglasses that block out 99 percent of both ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays.  When you purchase sunglasses with UV protection, you are both protecting your eyes from the sun's damaging rays, high energy visible blue light, and enhancing your vision.
