With winter right around the corner, a lot of people are going to hang up their fishing poles and backpacks and break out the skis and snowboards. With the vast amount of winter sports available, the last thing on your mind is likely ensuring your eyes have the best protection possible when you’re out enjoying the powder.
Let’s look at what our team here at Best Care Vision in O’Fallon, Missouri, recommends you do to protect your eyes this winter.
By far the best thing you can do for your eyes this winter is to use polarized lenses in your glasses or goggles. Polarized lenses protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, which can actually sunburn your eyes and cause other vision issues you don’t want to deal with.
You also want to make sure that the lenses in your glasses or goggles are heavy duty. The last thing you want is to crash while skiing or snowboarding and have a lens break and end up with dirt, rocks, or sticks in your eye. It may be a bit pricier to get lenses that are stronger, but your eyes will thank you in the event of a bad crash.
If you have any other questions about protecting your eyes this winter, call us today at 636-614-3911.
