Though sunglasses are almost always associated with sun protection, it is a proven fact that sunglasses are also essential to stay safe from the harmful UV rays of winter sun. In fact, winter sun poses more threats to one’s skin and eyes because people may forget to wear sunglasses in the winter weather when sun is nowhere in sight!
How is the winter sun harmful?
In summer, the sun may be stronger. However just because the winter sun isn’t as strong doesn’t mean it’s less harmful. During winter, a higher quantity of UV rays reflect off the snow, which means that everyone is exposed to both UV rays from the sun and the reflected UV rays bouncing off the surface of the snow, which makes it more dangerous . Persistent exposure to UV rays can lead to Snow blindness, skin aging and Eye diseases such as cataracts or macular degeneration among others.
Wearing large UV resistant sunglasses that cover the eyes and most part of the face will ensure adequate protection. Marketers by including custom sunglasses in their marketing mix can remind their audience of eye safety all the while putting their brand on display right in front of the eyes of their prospects.
Sun’s rays can cut through overcast skies and clouds. So, even if the sun remains hidden the UV rays are as powerful as ever. As snow reflects over 85% of UV rays ( which is more than any other surfaces like cement or water), people will be more exposed to the reflected rays that are bounced around. This is what makes wearing sunglasses important during any day of the year, including the days of snow and ice.
