At Quality Optical of Columbia, we still urge our patients to wear sunglasses year round. Winter is one of the most crucial times to wear sunglasses, because glare from the icy white snow and wet road conditions can make driving a hazard. All of the sunglasses we carry in our Clarksville optical store
are coated with a special UV protection, which helps dangerous rays from entering the eyes. UV rays can contribute to many eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts. These dangerous eye diseases can lead to a loss in vision over time. Glaucoma is characterized by pressure buildup inside the eye and although it is mostly an inherited disease, can be exacerbated by dangerous UV rays. Glaucoma contributes to an increase in intraoculare pressure, blocking the fluid in the eye and causing buildup.
Cataracts happen when the eye’s natural lens becomes clouded, causing vision loss. The condition happens mainly in people over 40 and is one of the leading causes of blindness in the U.S. Cataracts can be caused by UV rays and affect more than 22 million Americans today. There are different kinds of cataracts, including a subcapsular cataract, which occurs at the back of the lens. Those with diabetes have a higher risk of developing this kind of cataract. Our Clarksville optical store
sells sunglasses that can help combat these and other eye diseases by protecting them from the sun. Call our offices today to make an appointment and find out if prescription sunglasses, transitions lenses or other types of UV sunglasses are right for you.
