Your Source for Sunglasses in Fair Lawn and Surrounding Cities

Whether you’re staring at snow-capped mountains, blinding beaches, glittering waves, or a sunny sky, sunglasses make all the difference in your eyes’ comfort and safety. They also serve to express your unique style and personality. But, not all sunglasses give you the combination of clear vision and UV protection your eyes need. That’s why you should stop by for “shades” here at Resident Eye Care Associates, the leading provider of prescription sunglasses for Fair Lawn and surrounding cities.

Why Wear Sunglasses?

The most obvious reason for wearing sunglasses is to keep that blinding glare out of your eyes. But, there’s an even greater threat to the health and safety of your eyes, and it’s an invisible one: ultraviolet radiation. UVA and UVB rays from the sun can do serious damage. The most apparent example is photokeratitis, the painful “snow blindness” skiers and others who brave glare without proper eye protection suffer from. Over time, UV exposure can also lead to cataracts, macular degeneration, and eye or eyelid cancer. Sunglasses can provide an effective barrier that keeps this dangerous radiation at bay.

Some Sunglasses are Better than Others

Don’t assume that all sunglasses do an equally good job of protecting your eyes. While some of the cheap sunglasses you find at the drugstore block a lot of visible light, they may be largely ineffective at filtering UV. The only way you can make certain that your eyes are safe is to insist on “UV 400” sunglasses, which block the entire spectrum of UV radiation. Cheap generic sunglasses may also do nothing to correct your vision if you have a refractive error such as nearsightedness or farsightedness.
