Protected Eyes Are Happy Eyes
There are many reasons to wear sunglasses, and looking good is high on that list. Manufacturers are always coming out with stylish frames to make this easy. But it’s not all about looks. Sunglasses are also crucial in protecting our eyes from the sun.
Whether you’re looking for a pair of prescription sunglasses or you want a pair of high-quality, stylish sunglasses without a prescription, our team is available to help you.
Protecting Your Eyes from UV Rays
It’s easy to skip wearing sunglasses when we don’t have clip-ons or prescription shades, but we really shouldn’t. The UV radiation from the sun has been linked to conditions like cataracts or eye cancers. We owe it to our eyes to protect them.
UV radiation provides the significant benefit of stimulating vitamin A production in our bodies. But on the other hand, those same rays can damage our skin and our eyes. The 2 types of radiation we need to protect ourselves from are UVA and UVB.
Each of these forms of radiation is partially blocked by the Earth’s atmosphere. To protect our skin from these rays, we wear sunscreen. And to protect our eyes, we wear sunglasses.
One thing to consider is that not all sunglasses are made equally. When looking at sunglasses, prescription or otherwise, it’s important to consider their protection rating.
All product designs and engineering are managed by Swiss Eyewear Group's Design Team in Zurich Switzerland. Only high quality materials are used for our precision molding process. With our passion for design and love for fashion and details, we craft our sunglasses to aesthetic excellence. INVU is the perfect fusion of style and performance.
