Why Are Sunglasses Important?
Sunglasses blend style with essential eye protection, guarding against UV radiation to reduce the risk of conditions like cataracts. Polarized lenses enhance clarity and safety, acting as a barrier against environmental irritants for added eye comfort and infection prevention. Prioritizing functionality, sunglasses allow self-expression, elevating appearance while emphasizing the significance of eye health.
Types of Sunglasses
