Protect Your Eyes from the Sun's Harmful Rays

2 With Sunglasses

Optx 20/20

OPTX 20/20 Reading Lenses statically cling to the inside of any sunglasses making them the perfect product for "baby boomers" and the perfect add-on for sunglasses.

No more squinting...no more stacking two pair of glasses.  These ingenious plastic lenses solve the need for magnification in a clever and convenient way.

Sunglasses do not have to be expensive to protect your eyes from harmful UV-A and UV-B rays.
Look for sunglasses that block out 99-100% of both UV-A and UV-B.
UV or ultraviolet protection is a coating on the surface of the lens and has nothing to do with the tint or shade of the sunglasses.
Repeated UV exposure has been linked to eye diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration, as well as damage to the surface of the eye.
Polaroid sunglasses protect you from the glare of the sun.  If you wear sunglasses and you squint with your sunglasses on, you are glare sensitive and a Polaroid or mirrored lens would be more appropriate for you.
Tints are personal preference and do not affect the sunglasses' ability to block out UV rays.  Brown tints tend to change the color of things, while with green and gray tints this is less noticeable.
Smaller frames are stylish now.  Because light can come around the frames, extra protection such as a hat is helpful in preventing UV exposure, if you are exposed to the sun on a frequent basis.
Wraparound sunglasses that provide side shields are the best at blocking out harmful rays.
