Why is it necessary to wear sunglasses
during the day?
The main reason for wearing sunglasses
is to protect our eyes from the harmful effects of sun, UV-A and
UV-B rays. It is worth mentioning that the sun can provoke various
problems to the eyes, such us conjunctivitis, cataract, problems
in retina and many more. Another important reason is that we have
to protect our eyes from dust and other free particles in the
air. Consequently, it is necessary to wear sunglasses during the
day, wherever we are.

We have to point out that all the eponymous sunglasses are constituted
by lenses with UV filters, anti-reflective and other specifications

sunglasses that are not eponymous or they are not sold in optical
stores, are made possibly by lenses that do not protect you from
the sun and may cause problems to your vision.

disorders, should have an eye test every 2 years
- The range between 35-40 years of age is critical and all people
should have an eye test in order to detect glaucoma. If glaucoma
is detected, the check-up should be done every year
- People with medical history concerning glaucoma, diabetes,
high pressure or high myopia, should check their eyes certainly
every year. People over 65 years old should normally have an
eye check-up every 2 years.
In any other occasion that you feel your vision is not as normal
as always, you should contact and visit the ophthalmologist immediately.

is the only appropriate who will advise you when you should return
for your next eye test.
