Cinzia Designs announces the Top 5 Tips for protecting your eyes in style this summer. Each summer the Sun Safety Alliance designates a week to promote sun safety awareness.
According to the Vision Learning Center, many problems can occur from
long-term exposure to UV rays including cataracts, macular
degeneration, scaring, or skin cancer. These defects can be avoided by
following simple steps to protecting your eyes.
Cinzia Designs Founder Cynthia Shapiro reveals her "Top 5 Tips" to protect your eyes this summer:
1. Make it an All Day Affair: Sunglasses play an important role in
protecting the eyes by filtering out harmful UV rays. This means glasses
should be worn at all times when outdoors, even in the early morning or
late afternoon hours. Even though the sun looks dim at these times it
is still spouting out harmful rays.
2. Go Big to Stay Young: Larger frames are in style right now and
that is a good thing! The more area your glasses cover the better they
will protect you from sun exposure. Movie star style frames not only
look chic, but they can help fight off crow’s feet, freckles and other
unsightly signs of aging.
3. Read Labels: When selecting a pair of sunglasses, make sure to
pick a pair that reduces glare, filters 99 – 100% of UV light rays and
does not distort colors. How to find these types of glasses? The
reduction of glare is most prominent with a polarized lens. To ensure
the most protection from UV rays, sunglasses will be marked with a
sticker that tells you how much UV radiation they block. Cinzia Designs
offers sun wear with polarized lenses and each pair is marked with a UV
400 sticker, which guarantees 99-100% UV light protection. Look for
these labels on your sun wear.
4. Discount Glasses Can Mean Discount Protection: It’s tempting to
pick up a pair of knock-off Versace’s on Venice beach — but what are you
really buying? Chances are those cheap copies offer little to no
protection from the sun. Sunglasses do not have to be pricey — many
stores like Target offer inexpensive and chic options that also protect
5. Love Thy Glasses: Trends come and go, but you should select a
style that truly suits your style and needs. You are much more likely to
wear your sun protection if you feel and look great in your frames.
Don’t buy trendy glasses that you will never wear. Buy sunglasses that
make you shine!
