Although we are approaching winter, it’s important that we know that it’s just as important to protect our eyes on a cold winter’s day as much as those scorching sunny days as there are harmful UVA, UVB and UVC rays 365 days a year that we need to save our eyes from.
With Macular Degeneration Week happening right now it’s important that we know that Macular Degeneration is one of the leading causes of blindness in Australia so it’s important that we wear polarized lenses during the cooler months.
The team at Maui Jim have given us some reasons why we should keep wearing our polarized lenses as the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler.
Age proof your eyes
The harsh winter weather can be very insensitive on your eyes as the cool winds can dry the skin around your eyes causing them to age faster than usual. Wearing Maui Jim sunglasses is an easy way to prevent the premature aging of your skin and make your eyes feel younger for longer!
Sunglasses aren’t just for bright sunny days
The position of the sun is lower in the sky during winter meaning your eyes are exposed to a harsher blast of UV rays during the cooler months. This can cause a multitude of issues for your eyes including sunburn on the eye’s surface, cataracts, macular degeneration and even cancer of the eye and surrounding skin.
Unlike bags which eventually get left under the table, sunglasses stay with you, either on your face, the top of your head or slotted into your neckline. The new styles within Maui Jim‘s fashion forward range add a touch of style to any look and make for the perfect finishing touch to your outfit!
