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.
