Should I wear sunglasses in wintertime?
With Christmas coming up, winter is just starting to kick in here in Tomball. The winter solstice is just around the corner, December 22nd. This is a great time to consider whether sunglasses are still necessary, just in time for a last minute gift if you are still looking. Sunglasses are important no matter what time of year it is. There are two main forms of sunglasses; those with only tint or color and those with a polarized filter inside the lens. Tinted sunglasses are what you find on most fashion sunglasses and the cheap ones you find at the grocery store and gas station. They only make it less bright, and unless they specifically say so, the do not always block UVA and UVB radiation. Polarized sunglasses, like those you find in an optical, not only dim the light but they also block out certain wavelengths of light. They not only make it more comfortable to see by making it less bright, they also reduce the glare and reflections especially when driving. Although more expensive, polarized sunglasses are well worth the cost, and are what I recommend to my patients, as well as what I wear and my family wears.
