Even when the weather outside is frightful, you still need to wear sunglasses in the snow. The bright white color of the snow reflects sun’s rays directly back up into your eyes and can cause snow blindness and sunburns of the eye. To protect your eyes and vision, choose the right sunglasses lenses for the snow. Learn more about how to select sunglasses from your favorite optometrist at McPherson Optometry.
What Kind of Sunglasses Lens is Best Suited for the Snow?
We recommend using UV blocking lenses for all seasons including the winter months. These lenses block out 100 percent of all ultraviolet radiation (UV) rays that are most harmful from the sun. By wearing these sunglasses when outside in the snow you can block reflective rays, as well.
Do I Need a Prescription to Get Sunglasses at an Optometrist?
You do not need a prescription for sunglasses when you visit our optometrist. We do make prescriptions for corrective lenses, such as for correcting astigmatism and nearsightedness. In addition, you can choose Transitions lenses that allow you to have sunglasses and prescription lenses in one pair of eyeglasses.
