May 24th, 2011

This report illustrates that residents in US are likely to be exposed to the UV at higher level and provides tips to prevent vision problems caused by exposure to UV. In addition, this report says that many cities in US have high UV rays levels.

As Ed Greene, CEO of The Vision Council says that it is of great importance for residents to know clearly about how to protect their eyes from harmful UV rays. He hopes that people can have a better understanding of shielding their eyes and this report can stimulate them to protect their families and themselves.

When it comes to protecting eyes and skin around the eyes, wearing sunglasses is the best way. This report shows details to help customers choose the suitable sunglasses.

1. Focus on UV protection-The function against UV rays is the priority while choosing sunglasses. Qualified sunglasses must prevent both UVA and UVB.

2. Try on sunglasses-It is necessary to try on sunglasses in order to find proper sunglasses that you feel comfortable. Uncomfortable sunglasses will make problem happen to you instead of protecting you.

3. Purchase several pairs-Sunglasses with different lenses suit various activities. For example, if you want to do outdoor sports, sports sunglasses will be the ideal choice. If you suffer vision problem such as myopia, you will get good UV protection with the help of prescription sunglasses.

Yellow or amber color is advantageous for wearers to recognize traffic signals so drivers are more likely to choose sunglasses with yellow or amber color.

5. Choose design-Although there are a lot of designs available in the market, for extra protection, wraparound sunglasses with larger temple pieces and lenses will block more UV rays from all angles: the frontal and the sides. Therefore, compared to other sunglasses wraparound sunglasses have better function of UV protection. Besides, wraparound rx sunglasses will be very helpful for people who have vision problems.

Benefits of Polarized Optics and Polarized eyewear

April 4th, 2010

Polarized optics or polarized eyewear, including polarized sunglasses, driving glasses, shooting glasses and polarized clip-ons, etc., which performs different from ordinary ones, has been getting in popularity. Therefore, there’s a need to come down to what polarized optics bring to us, the benefit of polarized optics.

Light waves travel in so many directions that when they come to water, snow, and wet floor, reflective glare creates which reduces visual acuity, distort color, causes temporary blindness and so on. Unfortunately, eyewear we conventionally wear merely lessen the intensity of glare but never completely cut off it and light transmits trough lens horizontally and vertically. On the contrary, polarized optics absorb light waves traveling in any direction other than the vertical plane, which means that light transmits polarized optics only in one direction. By this way glare that come from other directions is impossible to pass through polarized eyewear. What’s more, another merit polarized optics possess that makes them surpass others is its adjustment of visual contrast and improvement of color recognition. Thus drivers wearing polarized optics will be able to differentiate a red light from green in case of causing accident.

Polarized optics serves a purpose in every outdoor activity to protect eyes. With polarized eyewear, fishermen will see fishes swimming freely in the water; with polarized eyewear, photographers will have a more charming vision in the sunshine; with polarized eyewear, golfers will be allowed to follow their balls and accurately determine how far the hole from them are.
