Each year people suffer damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays, which are bad for our skin and eyes. Our Las Vegas sunglasses help protect eyes from harmful UV rays while doubling as a fashionable accessory. Without sunglasses, eyes can suffer from diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Cataracts are a clouding of the lens in the eye and can blur vision and cause vision loss. 20% of cataract cases are caused by too much UV exposure. Macular degeneration results from damage done to the retina and damages central vision as well. It is the leading cause of blindness in the U.S., and can happen due to dangerous UV overexposure. All of our sunglasses are designed to block out 99 to 100% of all UVA and UVB radiation. This helps to protect eyes as well as the skin around the eyes. The skin around the eyes is delicate and can be susceptible to skin cancer from UV rays as well.
Our Las Vegas sunglasses all feature a protective and strong UV coating in order to ward off harmful rays from the sun. We also offer a fully stocked eyewear selection as well. For those who often go in and out of doors and who cannot wear contact lenses, we recommend transitional sunglasses. Transitionals are shaded glasses that lighten and darken depending on the lighting situation. Wearers can wear the glasses indoors as regular eyeglasses, and when they walk outside, the lenses darken into shades. They are easy and convenient and a great way to have prescription lenses and sunglasses at the same time.
UV rays are dangerous rays from the sun that can harm eyes and cause eye disease such as glaucoma and cataracts if they are not shielded properly. Sunglasses should have a 100% UV rating to block these harmful rays, and that’s why at the offices of Joseph Eng, OD, we offer Paradise sunglasses that all feature a strong UV coating over them. Sunglasses can also shield the skin around the eyes from skin cancer and harmful lesions.
Both prescription and non-prescription sunglasses should have UV protection and enough coverage to shield the eyes from harmful rays. Our prescription sunglasses can come in both regular sunglasses and glasses called Transitions lenses, which change from light to dark depending on the lighting situation. These are great for people who don’t want to wear prescription eyeglass lenses, so that they don’t have to switch between their regular glasses and their sunglasses. Transitions lighten when you walk into a room and when you go back outside into the sunlight, darken back to sunglasses. Sunglasses are also great for glare while driving and while outdoors playing sports such as skiing and volleyball. Ask our knowledgeable staff about our Paradise sunglasses and how they can help you see better.
Besides Paradise sunglasses, we also have regular eyeglass frames and contact lenses. It’s important to come in annually for a yearly exam to check your eyes and make sure that your vision hasn’t changed. Slight changes in vision can signal an eye disease such as glaucoma or cataracts, and the sooner these diseases are caught, the better. Most eye diseases, if caught in time, can be helped before any worse vision changes occur. Eye disease is a serious health risk that should not be taken lightly.
