Protecting your eyes from the sun is crucial as summer approaches. In this article, you will find 5 tips to effectively safeguard your eyes in preparation for the summer.
Stay Protected all SUMMER long! Five tips to take care of your eyes for athletes and children.
Summer is the favorite season for many to enjoy the sun and outdoor activities, from sports to vacations, but let’s not forget to PROTECT OUR EYES from the dangers of the sun.
To be ready for summer, there are 5 tips to follow:
1- Choose sunglasses with Polarized lenses
Choose sunglasses with polarized lenses to reduce glare and protect your eyes from UV rays.
Polarized lenses provide protection from UV rays, but that’s not all. In fact, this special type of lens is able to concentrate or diverge light rays and attenuate UV-A and UV-B radiation through a polarizing filter that eliminates cross reflections.
Le lenti polarizzate sono quindi le lenti più comode e riposanti per i tuoi occhi anche in condizioni di luce molto forte tipiche di: Mare e Alta montagna (specialmente in presenza di ghiaccio che riflette la luce). Scegliere una lente polarizzata favorisce il relax visivo e a fine giornata non sentirai gli occhi stanchi come quando utilizzi una lente non polarizzata.
2 – Protect your eyes with a wraparound frame
Use sunglasses with a wraparound frame that fully covers your eyes to prevent sunlight from filtering in from the sides.
Using a wraparound frame in summer for hiking, outdoor running, or cycling provides greater protection for your eyes not only from the sun but also from the air, dust, insects, and any projectiles that may come into contact with our eyes.
3 – Use Mirrored Lenses for Increased Contrast and Better Color Perception
Choose colored lenses like brown or gray, which reduce eye fatigue and enhance contrast. Opt for lenses with anti-reflective coatings to reduce glare and improve clarity of vision.
High-contrast mirrored lenses provide maximum protection and perfect vision by enhancing the contrast of natural colors, increasing the enjoyment of engaging in your favorite outdoor activities.
4 – Always Check the Certifications
Always verify that the sunglasses are certified for UV protection (European regulations always included in the box when purchasing new eyewear), so you can be sure they meet quality standards and protect your eyes.
Demon sunglasses comply with Regulation (EU) 2016/425 and the requirements defined by the standard EN ISO 12312-1:2013 and EN ISO 12312-1:2013/A1:2015.
5 – Protect Children’s Eyes
Remember that children also need protective eyewear, so make sure to purchase suitable glasses for them. We can provide you with the best recommendations.
Always choose models with shatterproof lenses for maximum protection in case of accidental impact, and ensure that the filters are for UV-A and UV-B protection.
