Apart from being a fashion statement, sunglasses are extremely protective to the eye and the surrounding areas. Optometrists recommend wearing sunglasses whenever you may be exposed to Ultraviolet (UV) light. UV rays can cause damage to the skin surrounding our eyes as well as the internal and external structures of the eyes. Different quality lenses offer different UV blocking abilities. Category 3 sunglasses have been certified to block out all harmful UV rays. 

Sun damage to the eye can come in many forms. Most commonly, we observe Sunglasses | The Eyewear Shopchanges to the white (sclera) of the eye, in the form of pterygium and pingueculae. This damage is a growth of the white tissue outwards and onto the surface of the front of the eye, the cornea. Sunglasses act as a blocker to the harmful rays that exacerbate this growth. Sun damage can also cause early cataract and cancers of the skin around the eyes. 

Category 3 sunglasses are available in either tinted or polarised options. Tinted sunglasses offer complete blockage of UV rays. Polarised sunglasses are tinted lenses with an added glare filter. Glare is caused by scattered light reflected from bright surfaces, such as car windshields, water and roads. By reducing this scattered effect, we are often able to gain more clarity of vision, as well as significantly improved comfort.
