For the well-being of your eyesight, you should always wear sunglasses. Find out how to choose the shape, materials and treatment of sunglasses.


Often conceived as a mere aesthetic accessory, sunglasses are chosen to complete a look. Some people use them to hide that veil of shyness and embarrassment they feel when talking to other individuals. Still others, however, to "set a tone".


In reality, sunglasses are first and foremost a necessity for the well-being of the eye and sight: everyone, from children to the elderly, from those with light eyes to those with dark eyes, should wear sunglasses, because they represent the most valid ally against the sun's UV rays, which, if they penetrate the eye, could lead to serious consequences.


There is various damage that the amount of sun and more or less prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause to the eyes and which are often underestimated:


  • Dry eyes, with burning, possible pain and blurred vision, perception of having a foreign body in the eye;
  • Conjunctivitis, with associated swelling and redness of the eye;
  • Keratitis: difficulty opening the eyes due to prolonged sun exposure of the eye, which dries out;
  • Cataract, which is actually the leading cause of blindness globally.


Here are four main reasons to always wear sunglasses, even in winter:


1. To avoid or prevent any damage described above, but also irritation and pain caused by sand, wind, snow reflection;

2. To keep your eyes healthy by choosing quality glasses;

3. For protection following eye surgery;

4. For comfortable viewing without annoying reflections or glare.
