Silverfish: Surf Sunglasses Should Stay on Your Face
How many times have been on the water and been blinded by the sun?
You could take your sunglasses with you, but if you’re ripping up the waves, they probably won’t stay on your face for long. It’s even worse if you need prescription lenses. Contacts will stay in, but you run the risk of bloodshot and irritated eyes if you bite it. And forget about trying to wear prescription glasses like you would wear on the street in the water—they’ll just make it worse.
You might ask yourself, how can I avoid this problem? Plenty of people go bare-faced on their boards, right? If you spend all day under the sun, you know it can scorch your skin and cause a painful burn. You know you can get skin problems down the road if you’re not protected.
Just like your skin, your eyes can get damaged by the sun’s harsh rays. This kind of overexposure can lead to vision problems down the road, like photokeratitis (which is extremely painful) and an increased chance of developing cataracts and macular degeneration. Good luck surfing if that happens.
So what do you do? It’s not like you can slather your eyes in sunblock.
First, a bit of education. There are three types of harmful ultraviolet light: UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVC is the worst, but it’s absorbed by the atmosphere around us and doesn’t reach the ground. However, you do need to worry about UVA and UVB. Both of these are pretty bad for the eyes and can cause the problems we talked about earlier. Sunglasses will protect you. That is, IF they stay on your face.
Here at Silverfish, we have the solution. Our surf sunglasses are specifically designed to stay glued to your mug and not leave you blind when it counts. Each pair has an strap that attaches to each earpiece and wraps around the back of your head. Forget simple sunglasses, Silverfish protects your eyeballs with surf goggles.
We’ve even got you covered with prescription lenses, if you need them. Don’t think these are some lame goggles, though. We’ve got four awesome designs that look great and fit in with the best eyewear out there.
Protect your eyeballs! Strap a pair of Silverfish surf sunglasses on your face and see the waves you’ve been missing.
