Everyone always talks about how bad UV rays are for your skin, but no one ever mentions how harmful they can be for your eyes!

UV rays can cause cataracts, macular degeneration and other harmful eye diseases.  To protect your eyes from UV rays make sure that your sunglasses block 100% of UV rays.

Dr. Tavel, or one of his board certified optometric associates,  can help you find the best and most appropriate sunglasses for you.  For active people who enjoy cycling or running outside, performance sunglasses like Rudy Project or WileyX would be great!  Wraparound sunglasses can help protect every part of your eye while being active.

Sunglasses aren’t just important for the summer either.  In fact, winter outdoor sports require sunglasses, too.  And for that, there is no finer sunglass lens than Purifier® polarized sunglasses which completely block glare from the snow, just like they do from water.

With Purifier polarized lenses your snow experience is much more enjoyable …and you might just spend more time up on your skis as opposed to down in the snow!  Also, at high altitudes the risk for snow blindness is very high because the snow can reflect up to 80% of the UV rays.

So while you’re having fun outside, don’t forget about protecting your eyes.  Wear Purifier polarized lenses exclusively available from Dr Tavel and make the most out of the rest of your summer …and your winter too!
