Honoring World Sight Day
October 10th is World Sight Day!
This worldwide holiday, founded by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), seeks to raise awareness and inspire action on issues of eye health. With a special focus on blindness that results from preventable or treatable conditions, World Sight Day seeks to educate the population on how to care for the eyes to keep them healthy and strong for the long haul.
The IAPB advocates for healthy eye care practices including frequent check-ups, preventative measures, and treatment for conditions like cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Eagle Eyes’ NASA Optic lenses protect the eye against elements that can lead to such conditions, like UV radiation, blue light, and general stress and strain.
Our four main categories of eyewear – sunglasses, low light glasses, night glasses, and digital glasses -- all contain unique technologies developed to enhance and protect vision in a range of less-than-friendly environments, keeping your eyes healthy and safe for the long haul.
All of our sunglass styles feature our signature Trilenium® polarized lenses, developed from original NASA Optic technology to block 99.9% of harmful UVA and UVB rays. Prolongued exposure to UVA and UVB rays has been linked with the formation of cataracts that can damage the retinas.
The Trilenium® lenses also protect against scattered blue light, an excess of which is thought to contribute to macular degeneration.
Wearing protective sunglasses is one easy measure you can take to prevent these two serious eye conditions.
Low Light Glasses
Made with our StimuLight® lenses, our low light glasses not only block UVA, UVB, and blue light rays, but are also specifically designed to improve definitiion and contrast during foggy, hazy, and murky conditions. The improved clarity they provide reduces stress and strain on the eye, helping to relax and renew tired and overworked eyes.

Made with nighttime driving in mind, our night glasses are constructed with signature Night-Lite® lens technology that helps to enhance clarity and visual acuity while filtering out glare from bright lights. These lenses help to neutralize elements that might impair your vision, protecting your vision and your safety during nighttime activities.

Computer screens, smart phones, and tablets are notorious for emitting blue light, especially given how much time we spend in front of them. As mentioned previously, blue light exposure is thought to increase the risk of macular degeneration. It can also interfere with sleep patterns and contribute to visual fatigue.
Fortunately, Eagle Eyes offers digital glasses fortified with Digitec® lenses – a technology that blocks and filters harmful blue light from your screen so you can work better, sleep better, and reduce eye strain.
