Keep Your Eyes Safe From the Sun

The next time you go outdoors, remember to bring your sunglasses from Shop Pretty Essentials. You’re sure to find one or more pairs from Shop Pretty Essentials’ huge selection that you’ll be crazy about. And there’s a good chance that your friends, family and acquaintances—or even total strangers!—will want to know where you got them.

Just about everybody knows that the sun’s rays are bad for the skin. But did you know that too much sun beating down on unprotected eyes increases the risk of eye damage? Sunglasses are more than a bold fashion statement; they’re also a smart health choice!

Sun reflecting off of water in oceans, lakes and pools can cause a painful sunburn on the front part of the eye that causes redness, blurry vision, sensitivity to bright light, and in rare cases, even temporary vision loss.

And it’s also important to wear sunglasses if you live in a cold climate. People who live where it snows are subject to “snow blindness,” which is a temporary loss of vision and inflammation of eyes caused by exposure to bright sunlight reflected from snow or ice.

In fact, wear sunglasses no matter what the calendar says. The UV index can be dangerously high even on cloudy days. The sunglasses need not be dark to offer protection; neutral gray, amber, brown or green lenses block at least 80 percent of transmissible light. And wear sunglasses even if your contact lenses include UV protection.

And on a related but lighter subject, sunglasses are a timeless accessory. They can make or break an outfit, and they certainly give an air of mystery. Whether it's because they want go unnoticed or simply because it's part of their look, here’s a shortlist of celebs who love their shades so much that they wear them at night and/or indoors (except when they’re driving, we hope!): Madonna, Snoop Dogg, Whoopi Goldberg, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Paris Hilton and Janet Jackson.

So for whatever reason you like to wear sunglasses, make sure they’re from Shop Pretty Essentials, which carries all the styles that will rock your world! For more information, please fill in your name and email address at the bottom of this website.
