Prepare for Summer with UV Eye Protection

Getting ready for summer fun? Don't forget the importance of protecting your eyes from the harsh UV rays of the sun. Just like UV rays can damage your skin when overexposed, these same rays can damage your eyes as well. At Today's Vision Bulverde, serving San Antonio, TX, and the surrounding areas, we can help you find the right UV protective eyewear for your needs.

UV Protection

More than Sunglasses

There is a great misconception that if you are wearing sunglasses your eyes are protected. The truth is, all sunglasses are not created equal. Regular sunglasses will protect your eyes from the brightness of the sun. This makes it easier to see in very sunny conditions, but regular sunglasses do not necessarily provide UV protection. UV protection is a special type of coating that is added to sunglasses lenses. This coating blocks the UV rays of the sun from reaching the retina of your eye.

Prescription Sun Protection

Many people who have a vision correction prescription are hesitant to wear sunglasses at all. If you need your vision correction all day, you might hesitate to swap out your regular glasses for sunglasses. Our optometry team will help you find sunglasses that protect your eyes and deliver crisp vision correction. Your eyeglasses prescription can be created as sunglasses with UV protection made in. If you use contact lenses, it is important to also have a pair of prescription sunglasses handy for those sunny days at the beach.

Other Ways to Protect Your Eyes this Summer

In addition to always using UV protection, you can also protect your eyes during the summer by limiting the amount of chlorine you allow in your eyes while swimming. You can use goggles to keep out this harsh chemical. Another important way to protect your eyes is to avoid swimming in water that may not be clean. This could include lakes and rivers. Bacteria in these waters could get into your eyes and cause infections.
