We’ve all been there – leaving the sunscreen at home on a cloudy day only to find ourselves burned to a crisp later. It’s very much the same concept when it comes to our eyes – few people would consider wearing sunglasses on a cloudy day, and that’s where this revolutionary technology comes in.
On top of this, it’s important to be mindful of how prevalent IR light is. UV is generally only a concern when you're outside - but due to its high-frequency wavelength, infrared is pretty much everywhere, even when you’re inside. This is why even people who have spent much of their lives indoors experience the cosmetic impact of ageing.
The good news is that you can protect against it - whether you have a prescription or not. Most people are wandering around without glasses or sunglasses which offer protection from the sun’s rays, allowing UV and IR to get through to back of the eye exposing to the elements all the time. Realising that there is still a lot of UV out there, especially in summer months (regardless of our perception of whether sun is ‘out’ or not) is key, ensuring we’re being mindful of eye health as well as the aesthetic impact of unprotected sun exposure.
So this is the other very important advantage of anti-ageing lenses
– the undeniable benefits for eye health with no effort or thought required by the wearer.
