How Do Sunglasses Improve Vision?

Is there more to sunshield?

Sunglasses are commonly known as sun protection for the eyes, but what else does it offer? Before delving deeper into the topic, let us take you through a brief history of sunwear. It dates back to ancient times when Inuit people used flattened walrus ivory as their eye protection from the sun’s glare, followed by the discovery of sunglasses made from flat panels of smoky quartz in the 12th Century. James Ayscough then experimented with tinted lenses in the 18th century, laying the foundation for modern sunglasses.

Fast forward to this day, sunglasses are now renowned for their sun protection feature, and also, as a fashion day-time accessory worn as an additional statement piece. Various types of high-end brands have come up with their designs as well, which people love to choose from. However, the question is, does it provide something more?  

It is important to note that a pair of sunglasses won’t be able to correct vision problems like eyeglasses can. But they play a crucial role in protecting and optimizing vision in different ways:

See better

When eyes are exposed to sunlight, pupils tend to dilate or expand to allow light to pass through, potentially causing discomfort and damage. Sunglasses can help alleviate this issue by preventing excessive pupil dilation, resulting in sharper vision. Additionally, a sunwear can help reduce glare and enhance colors and contrast, improving visibility, particularly in bright daylight, making it easier to enjoy outdoor activities.

Alternative protection after lasik/eye surgery

It is advisable to wear protective sunglasses after LASIK or any eye procedure, as they are tailored to help the eyes heal faster and protect them from light. However, ordinary sunglasses can also serve as a good alternative. While they may not provide the same level of specialized protection and support as protective sunglasses, they can still shield the eyes from small debris, sunlight, and other harmful objects that could hinder rapid recovery.

Prevent headaches

The Philippines is a tropical country that will surprise you with blazing heat and sunny weather. Have you ever experienced a throbbing pain in your head when you step outside? Bright sunlight is among the many triggers of headaches and migraines. Wearing your favorite pair of sunglasses will undoubtedly save you from this, as it effectively blocks unwanted light.

Avoid sun related eye diseases

Did you know that excessive exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays may increase the risk of developing cataracts, macular degeneration, and other dangerous eye conditions? This is because UV rays can damage the delicate tissues of the eye. Additionally, conditions like surfer’s eye can occur when eyes are exposed to UV light and strong winds. Therefore, wearing sunglasses with UV protection lenses is highly encouraged to prevent occurrences like these.
