It’s not just a fashion statement; it’s a necessity if you live in Jacksonville, Florida. Everyone needs a pair of sunglasses that are fashionable, yes, but also of high quality to reduce ultraviolet rays that affect your eyesight.
Many of us in Jacksonville, Florida, enjoy being outdoors when the weather is good. Whether you’re on the golf course, beach, or cruising around on your bike, it’s important to protect your eyes when you’re outside.
The Dangers of “Cheap” Sunglasses
We all do it. When we’re at a gas station or discount store and see a sunglass sale: “Buy a pair for $1!” We stock up and think to ourselves, sunglasses are sunglasses, they all block the sun. But that’s not necessarily accurate.
Oftentimes, we see our clients come in with injuries sustained from low-quality sunglasses. Two of the most common injuries we treat are from the uneven lens surface and unqualified ultraviolent transmissivity. The first, uneven lens surface, triggers fatigue in the eyes while the second will hide the visible light but allow ultraviolent ray into the sunglasses. As the pupil expands due to the dim light, more ultraviolet ray is absorbed into the eye.
Essentially, sunglasses are an investment. Choose quality over price and you’ll be making an investment for your eyes. Protect them now, or pay a lot more in eye care bills later as you attempt to make up for the poor quality. When you see a sunglass sale in the middle of a gas station or discount store, just say no! Turn to Valuvision instead to find the right sunglasses to match your unique style while protecting your eyes from the harsh Florida sun.
