Snow and Eye Health

Snowman wearing RayBan sunglassesWith the snow falling outside, it’s important to keep your eye health in mind. Snow is able to reflect 80-90% of sunlight*, which can be damaging for your eyes. It’s important to wear sunglasses that protect your eyes from UV rays.

Eye and Eye Optics has a wide selection of prescription sunglasses available. Not only are there a vast range of styles, but we also have a variety of lens colors. When picking your pair of new winter sunglasses, consider a pair with gray, amber or black lenses to greatly reduce, or even block, harmful rays.

As we continue our way through another Boston winter, don’t forget to protect your eye health. Stop by to see what Eye & Eye Optics has to offer!
