Sunglasses are an important accessory to wear when at the beach or on a boat because they protect your eyes from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV rays can cause damage to the eyes, leading to conditions such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. In addition, UV rays can also cause sunburn on the eyelids and around the eyes, which can be very painful and uncomfortable.
Sunglasses also help to reduce glare, which can be particularly intense when reflecting off of water. Glare can cause eye strain and fatigue, making it difficult to see clearly. Polarized sunglasses are particularly effective at reducing glare, making them a great choice for activities such as fishing or boating.
Sunglasses can also improve visual acuity and color perception, making it easier to see objects in the water, such as fish or debris. They also protect eyes from dust, wind, and other flying materials.
In addition to the health benefits, sunglasses can also be a fashion statement and can complement your beach or boat outfit.
It is important to choose sunglasses that offer adequate UV protection, look for those labeled as "UV400" or "100% UV protection" and consider the lens type and color according to your needs.
