UV Rays and their Effects

There are three types of UV rays – UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVC rays are the highest-energy rays and potential enough to damage your eyes, fortunately UVC rays will be completely blocked by Ozone layer.

UVA rays penetrate your eye the deepest and causing damage to cornea and retina over a period of time. Overexposure to UVA radiation has been linked to the development of macular degeneration, damage to the retina that causes loss of central vision, and certain types of cataracts, clouding of the lens that leads to a decrease in vision.

UVB rays are partially filtered by the ozone layer, but are more intense than UVA rays. They penetrate less deeply and are completely absorbed by the cornea. In short UVB rays have been known to cause “snow blindness,” a painful inflammation of the cornea that causes temporary vision loss.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF/SUNGLASSES

The best way to protect your eyes is by wearing a pair of good quality sunglasses whenever you’re outside. Look for a pair that’s UV400 or higher, as they will block 99.9{60d442c0809d4ebdbac887c70c73d060cb43ed2f197641b76d3a3bb668deab77} of UV rays. They should also be polarized, to ensure you’re free from harmful glare.

Economical strong local brands like Bavino, Citivision, Variety, Profile, Forever and Cartelo.

Polaroid sunglasses

Visible light waves from the sun travel in all directions. When this scattered light meets a horizontal surface, like a road or water, a large portion of the light is reflected with horizontal polarization. This horizontally-polarized light is seen as white glare, and prevents light that is useful to the human eye, reducing visibility.

Vertical light is useful to the human eye it helps us see. Horizontal light, however, simply creates glare. The vertically-aligned polarizing layer inside every Polaroid lens does not allow horizontal light to pass through. With Polaroid’s unsurpassable anti-glare properties, you can wear Polaroid lenses all day every day and enjoy whatever you’re doing in safety and comfort.

Polaroid sunglasses

Visible light waves from the sun travel in all directions. When this scattered light meets a horizontal surface, like a road or water, a large portion of the light is reflected with horizontal polarization. This horizontally-polarized light is seen as white glare, and masks light that is useful to the human eye, reducing visibility. By using a sheet of vertical polarizing material, the horizontally-polarized component can be significantly attenuated, reducing the overall light level reaching the eye. This improves contrast, and thus perception of the scene.
