What About Reading Glasses?
If you wear contact lenses, they may not protect your eyes from UV light. There are contact lenses available with UV protection. If you do not have contact lenses that absorb UV light, you need to protect your eyes with sunglasses.
Sunglasses cannot protect your eyes from certain intense light sources. Arc welding, tanning beds/lights, snowfields, or gazing directly at the sun (especially during a solar eclipse) for example, can severely damage your eyes. Looking at any of these light sources without adequate protection can cause a painful corneal condition called photokeratitis or even damage to the retina, causing a permanent loss of central vision. Your ophthalmologist can recommend the appropriate measures to take to protect your eyes in special situations.
The Rock Hill Eye Center carries a wide variety of sunglasses to meet your needs and style. Additionally, the Rock Hill Eye Center also offers prescription sunglasses for those that need corrective lenses to see at a distance.
