Sunglasses in Winter?

Most of us remember to wear eye protection and sunscreen in the summer, but we probably don't think about it as much during the winter months, even though studies show that sun exposure — regardless of season — may increase the risk of developing cataracts, snow blindness, and growths in the eye, including cancer. 


Sun reflecting off the snow can be very harsh. Exposure to UV radiation can even be high on cloudy days; in the northern hemisphere, the highest exposure is at midday. This extends through late winter and into early spring.


Stop by our Optical Department and learn about the latest options for sun protection, including prescription ski goggles.
