Protect Your Most Precious Assets

  • Written by  Eyecessories Informer

When your eyes begin to tear or squint due to bright outdoor light, your eyes are creating a natural defence against UV ray. After years of going unprotected, your eyes will eventually break down and disease may be inevitable.

For some time now the links between sun exposure and eye problems have been well-established by the medical community. Exposure to the sun is a major risk factor for the development of cataracts which is one of the leading causes of blindness. UV exposure is also linked to an increased risk of cancer of the eyelids and the conjunctiva (the membrane that covers the white part of the eye).

There are two types of UV rays which are harmful to our eyes. There is UVA rays, which penetrate into the back of the eye, and UVB rays, which cause damage to the front of the eye, where the lens and cornea are located. Both rays are very dangerous and need to be avoided when possible which is why care needs to be taken being outdoors for a long period of time.

Life in the sun seems to be a natural part of life in our 'sunburnt country'. Australians seem to have a love of the outdoor lifestyle and it is something that uniquely defines who we are so it is so important that care is taken when exposing ourselves to the outdoors for prolonged periods of time. We can hear the echo from the Cancer Council of Australia to 'Slide on some Sunglasses' and there is nothing better we could do to ensure the longevity of our most precious assets, our eyes.

When you find yourself our under the great Australian sky whether it be for a kick of the footy or a ride on the bike, ensure you are wearing glasses that meets the Australian Standard for sun protection. Eyecssories.com.au has a large range of sun protection products from sunglasses to clip-on an cover up products that can be worn with prescription glasses as well as the new Tack RX by 720armour® which is a favourite among athletes and now available to purchase online.
