The Importance of Polarized Eye wear During the Winter Months

As the cold weather starts to make its way into our area, it is imperative for patients to understand the continued importance of protective sunglasses. Polarized sunglasses are usually associated with the summer months, but in some ways it is even more important to wear protective glasses during the winter months. This time of year, the sun sits at a much different angle, and its rays impact our eyes and skin at a lower position. This translates to an increase in the exposure of harmful UV rays, especially if we are not wearing the proper sunglasses as protection.



Polarized sunglasses, which are much different than the older technology dye tinted lenses, are both anti-reflective and UV resistant. A good quality polarized sun glass lens will protect you from the entire UV spectrum. This not only preserves your vision, but it also protects the skin around the eyes. Which is said to have a much higher rate of susceptibility to skin cancer.


The accumulation of snow will also pose another issue that can be countered by a polarized pair of sunglasses. Snow on the ground tends to act as a mirror because of its white reflective surface. These reflections can become a hindrance while driving. The anti-reflective surface of polarized sunglasses will help cut through the glare, and give a driver a better view. Polarized sunglasses come in many different options based on the patients needs. Whether it be single vision distance lenses, bifocals, or progressive lenses, there is a polarized lens fit for all patients. Please make sure to stop in to our optical department during these winter months to pick up a pair of polarized sunglasses.
