At Eye Express, we’re your number one and only place to come for all of your eyewear and accessories. This includes sunglasses. Now, you might be thinking that you don’t need to worry about sunglasses right now because it’s winter. But if you only wear sunglasses during the warm weather, you’re missing out and our South Bronx optical store wants you to know that there are excellent reasons for using your sunglasses all year round, including during the coldest months of the year.
Sunglasses are most often associated with the beach and the strong sunlight that are a hallmark of summer. Have you considered, though, that you the harmful UV rays of the sun are present 365 days per year? And in the winter, glare is a particularly challenging concern as light reflects off of snow and ice. This can make driving hazardous as the glare can be blinding, preventing you from seeing the road or your fellow drivers properly. And we all know that even a couple of seconds in which you can’t see while driving can be a source of danger. There are other reasons for winter use of sunglasses, though. Athletic activities, including skiing, ice skating, and snowmobiling are well served by sunglasses from our South Bronx optical store.
The reality is that even just walking around, sunglasses provide valuable protection. They shield your eyes from the effects of moderate to severe winds that can dry your eyes out. Wind also stirs up dust, dirt, and other foreign objects that can all too easily end up damaging your eyes and cause irritation or an infection. Of course, when it comes to the main reason for sunglasses, you can have full confidence because every pair we carry at our South Bronx optical store blocks out 100% of both the UVA and UVB rays, keeping your eyes protected.
There are certainly enough practical reasons to wear sunglasses all year round, but don’t forget how great they’re going to look on you. We carry an array of styles and colors for you to choose from. Keep your eyes safe from harm and enjoy the fashionable style offered by sunglasses from our South Bronx optical store.
