Did you know that during the summer months, Sacramento and Elk Grove are among the sunniest spots in the country? According to the website Current Results during the month of July Sacramento can expect 97% of the days to be sunny.
Sunny days bring outdoor activities, but while most people remember to protect their skin from the sun how many are just as diligent with their eyes? Over time, excessive UV exposure can increase your risk of cataracts, age related macular degeneration, and growths on the eye. Wearing sunglasses every time you go outside will protect your eyes from sun damage, and lower your risk of these serious eye conditions.
Give your eyes the protection they need, when selecting sunglasses:
Choose sunglasses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
Large frames and wrap around styles protect your eyes better than smaller frames.
Even if your contact lenses have UV protection, they may not be enough. Wear sunglasses
Prescription sunglasses improve your safety by allowing you to see clearly while performing outdoor sports or driving.
Make sure the color in your sunglasses is perfectly matched, and that there is no distortion in the lenses.
Sun damage adds up over time. Even children need to wear sunglasses
Style and comfort are important. If your sunglasses look good and feel good you are more likely to wear them every time you go outdoors.
Crystal View Optometry in Elk Grove has many fashion designer frames for your prescription and non-prescription sunglasses including Ray-Bans! Once you pick out the perfect frame, let our trained opticians adjust your sunglass frames giving you optimum fit and comfort.
