Great Surf Goggles Provide UV Protection And More
As a person who spends most of their time on the beach, you’re probably aware that you need to protect your body with some high-SPF waterproof sunscreen. After all, you don’t want to look like a lobster when you’re done catching waves. But nobody really thinks about one of the most important body parts when they think about sun protection. That’s right, your eyes. Eyes need UV protection in the same way that the rest of your body does, but they’re a little bit harder to protect because you can’t just rub sunscreen on them and call it a day. You need surf goggles that protect your eyes from UV light.
There are three types of UV light: UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVC is the most dangerous, but fortunately, the ozone layer absorbs it and we don’t have to worry about being hurt. However, the ozone layer does not absorb UVA or UVB rays. UVA and UVB radiation is extremely dangerous to the eyes, and can even become severe enough to cause photokeratitis, which develops from extreme exposure to this kind of light. This can lead to excessive tearing, gritty feeling in the eyes, sensitivity to light, and redness. There are also long-term effects of constant exposure to UV radiation, such as a higher chance of cataracts or macular degeneration.
The best way to prevent this is to ensure that your sunglasses have UV protection. You should wear them whenever you go outside. However, regular sunglasses aren’t practical for the water. That’s why Silverfish surf goggles offer so many benefits. They convert from sunglasses to surf goggles that have UV protection. You don’t have to worry about the sun damaging your eyes while you have a blast out on the waves. Instead, you can worry yourself about the next wave to catch.
