Beat the Glare From Sea to Ski With Polarized Sunglasses

It only takes a few seconds without proper eyewear to feel the pain and strain that come with snow blindness, and anyone who has tried to hit the slopes without polarized sunglasses or goggles knows how hard it is to see and navigate in such brightly lit environments. Snow blindness, or photokeratitis if you want to get scientific, is a temporary condition that’s caused by overexposure to the sun’s UV rays and is basically a sunburn on your cornea. It is caused when the eyes are exposed to the bright light reflected off snow, ice, and sometimes (but to a lesser degree) water and sand. And while it’s most often temporary, it is still quite serious as it can impact vision and require days of recovery.  

With snow already falling in many parts of the country and ski season gearing up, it’s time to make sure you’ve got a pair of polarized sunglasses that have what it takes to protect you from the sun’s harmful rays.

Polarized Sunglasses Can Protect Your Eyes From Harmful Rays

UVA, UVB, scattered blue light … these are the sun’s rays that we’re exposed to whenever we go outside. These harmful rays can cause both temporary and permanent damage to our eyes if we’re not careful. In addition to the above-mentioned snow blindness, according to preventblindness.org, exposure to UVA, UVB and scattered blue light can also cause macular degeneration, cataracts, skin cancer on the eyelids and growths (called pterygium) on the whites of the eyes. These eye conditions can impair vision, cause pain and require surgery to correct.

But it’s fairly easy to avoid these conditions by simply wearing polarized sunglasses that block out harmful rays and protect your eyes. And while sunglasses should be worn whenever you are outside – even when it’s overcast – they are an absolute must when skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling or sledding.

Polarized for Protection, to Cut Glare and to Improve Visibility 

Just because the lenses of sunglasses are dark, this doesn’t mean they’re providing UV protection. In fact, the color of the lens offers little indication as to the level of protection. That’s why when shopping for UV protective polarized sunglasses, it’s best to go with a brand and style that clearly states the levels of protection it delivers.

The Eagle Eyes selection of polarized sunglasses are designed using TriLenium technology for the ultimate in UVA, UVB and scattered blue light protection. Available in three levels, all TriLenium® lenses block 99.9% of harmful rays, provide polarized vision enhancement and are protected by 2X Scratch-Guard inner and outer coating. TriLenium® 7 also comes with added smudge-proof and water-repellent coatings, while TriLenium® 10 features all the above benefits along with an anti-reflective inner lens coating.
