Benefits of Wearing Sunglasses

1:48 AM

Protecting myself from everyday exposure to the elements is becoming more and more a personal commitment than anything else. Age has taught me that good health is not an accident. It is a result of the combined forces of protection, proper care, and positive disposition.

Eye Care

Most people do not give  much attention to eye care until their eyes shows signs of trouble. Some even ignore the early symptoms to the great detriment of the condition of the eyes. Others just allow their eyes to be exposed to possible harm, indulging in activities without suitable eye protection.

The sun's light is especially glaring during this summer. While most of us have learned by now that umbrellas or protective clothing actually offer a degree of protection for our skin when we go outside, we tend to forget that our eyes need protection as well. The most practical to use are sunglasses.

More Than Cool or Trendy

While sunglasses are commonly used as fashion accessories to look cool or trendy, they serve the very important function of protecting the eyes from the sun's glare. They are especially useful in certain tasks such as driving to minimize squinting that tend to lead to road accidents. I myself am hopelessly blinded by the sun's direct glare without sunglasses and I know how dangerous that can be in driving. Most accidents just take a fraction of a second of distraction to take place.

Protection from the Elements

We are literally at the mercy of the elements once we go outside our homes. Wind, debris, and the sun's glare can easily harm our eyes without proper preventive measures. The wind can make our eyes dry. Debris may come from anywhere and can injure eyes in an instant. There is also such a thing as eye sunburn in the same manner as skin gets sunburned. Ultraviolet rays damage eyes and the delicate skin around them. Wearing sunglasses offers the first line of defense against eye injury and disease.

Cover Power

Wearing sunglasses also offer enough cover to hide eye-bags from lack of sleep, expressions that betray emotions, or just the simple fact that we got a little lazy to put on make-up. It does lend a pulled-together look when we don't have much time in our hands to fix ourselves before we leave the comforts of our home. 

My Say

I admit that there were times that I have not given enough attention to the care of my body especially during the younger years. Youth has a way of making us feel immortal thus our tendency for neglect in the aspect of health care.

That said, now I know better. With my eye grade steadily increasing by the year due to natural wear and tear, I need to be more careful and avoid other possible sources of harm that can be prevented. Getting myself a pair of quality sunglasses is the first step for eye protection. I ordered my latest pair online from

Product Review

Allow me to share what I think about my new pair of sunglasses:

1. It is made of high-quality material and workmanship is clean thereby making it look more expensive than it actually is.

2. The price of $19.95 is very reasonable, considering its quality. There is a wide range of choices for cheap glasses as seen online.

3. Delivery time is acceptable considering that it went through the post office. I received the product in very good condition although I had to pay the post office a PHP 100.00 fee when it was delivered to our home.

With regards to product durability, I will let time be the judge of that. For now, I am very satisfied with the sunglasses I ordered. I expect to be able to use it for a long time.
