The important thing to remember is UV protection is needed all year. While it may seem that UV protection is more important in the  the summer, the sun’s UV rays, whether direct from the sun or reflected by snow, water or other surface, are not the only thing that may harm your eyes and vision this winter.

In the winter, many outdoor activities are done in the mountains, where UV levels can be higher. Add in some UV radiation reflecting off snow and ice… It is no wonder that more people do not have sunburned sore eyes and even snow blindness.

Coupled with winter weather, cold wind and dry air… all spell out irritated and red eyes.  no need to go on on how important it is to wear protective eyewear throughout the winter season.

We like the convenience of Over Prescription sunwear such as Haven®, who offer lenses block 100% UVA/UVB rays. Prescription eyeglass wearers often go outside unprotected, since buying and carrying another pair of prescription sunglasses can be expensive and inconvenient. These are made to have several pairs, one for the car, one to hang right beside the door, one for the office and for the garage…. anyplace you go in an out of doors.. . Just slip these on over your current prescription eyewear and you can feel eye safe all day.
