Did you know that 80% of the UV exposure we get throughout our entire life occurs by the age of 18?

Just like our skin, our eyes can suffer from “sunburn” particularly in a sunny place like Queensland. UV exposure can lead to cataracts (which cause blurred vision), macular degeneration (a leading cause of blindness) and pterygium (a fleshy growth on the cornea) so protecting your eyes with sunglasses is a necessity not just a fashion statement. Sunglasses also help reduce annoying glare allowing you to see more clearly when driving, playing sports or spending time outside with the kids.

“protecting your eyes with sunglasses is a necessity

not just a fashion statement”
