Raise your hand if you had no idea that one of the leading causes of wrinkles around the eyes is UV rays. What usually happens when you don’t wear sunglasses and catch a glare from the sun? You squint! Keep it up, and you can expect those not so fine lines to appear soon. Forgoing sunglasses can also lead to medical issues, especially if you have sensitive eyes. Excess exposure to UV rays can burn the cornea area; a condition called corneal flash burn or ultraviolet keratitis. Exposure to brightness or glare often triggers my migraines, so headaches are another reason to consider eye protection. Just the three reasons above should suffice in showing the importance of protective eyewear. However, not all sunglasses are made equal, the lenses being the most vital factor.
Xperio UV polarized lenses provide maximum UV protection on the front and back sides of the lenses, keeping your eye area safer from harsh glares and UV rays. That is extremely important because up to 50 percent of UV rays that reach the eyes come from the reflection off of the back surface of the lens. What is wonderful is that you don’t have to sacrifice style because the lenses are available in many coatings and color selections, while fitting various frames. It is so awesome that Xperio UV is available for prescription wearers, so all of us in the spectacles crew can rock these awesome sunnies! I just started wearing glasses one month ago, so I shouted with joy when I saw that I could get Xperio UV sun lenses with my prescription. As a stylish traveler, I like to have variety in my eyewear. Outfit coordination for life!
Xperio UV sent me a pair of their polarized lenses, and I’ll admit I was nervous about the fit and aesthetic of what they would choose for me. Luckily I worried for nothing! I received cute pink and black frames that fit perfectly and came in a nice case with a cleaning cloth. These lovely gems were even great to wear while doing some renovations to my new home because the lenses are scratch-resistant and very easy to clean. While browsing the Xperio UV site, it wasn’t long before I had selected a few (a lot) of lenses I want to add to my collection of sunglasses. I want to get the blue mirror, silver mirror, plum gradient and ruby lenses very soon.
94 percent of people don’t realize the sun can be just as harmful to their eyes as it is on their skin and I used to be one of them. Now I know, and so do you! Don’t ignore the dangers of the sun and forgo maximum eye protection just for chic sunglasses. You don’t have to! You can have it both ways by combining stylish frames and Xperio UV polarized lenses. Customized sunglasses? Yes, please!
