For years, health campaigns have been raising awareness about sun exposure dangers.

Behavioral improvements such as finding shade, wearing a hat, sunglasses, or clothes with coverage are all aimed at minimising UVR dose. Exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation causes a variety of diseases, including cataracts, droplet keratopathy, and macular degeneration (UVR).Evidence shows a strong correlation between UVR exposure, skin and eye diseases.

With immense pleasure, Bringing forward to the midst, presenting eco-friendly sunglasses, (Certified Australian-made and PETA-approved Vegan.) Traditional frames take upwards of 450 years to decompose. Plant-based polarised sunglasses from Eco-Friendly are not only designed to last a lifetime, but they are also 100 percent recyclable and biodegradable in 110 days in compost conditions.

Discussed below are some of the benefits and uses of owning a pair of eco friendly sunglasses,

These types of sunglasses offer a vertical or straight protection to the eyes and its efficiency depends on the lens’ radiation, sunglasses geometry, and exposure conditions.

High UVR does reach the eyes even when sunglasses are worn. Ineffective use of sunglasses might even lead to an increase of UVR doses to pupil dilatation.

The majority of corneal injuries recover without any discomfort or trouble in a day or two. Some environments, such as woodworking or yard work, however, have a higher risk of long-term injury. Always go for prevention first, through the use of sunglasses or other personal protective equipment to shield your eyes from potential damage.

Before the age of 8-10 years, 2-5% of UVR received by the eyes can reach the retina, while over 25 years, this will only be 1-2%. High-energy visible light (HEV) has recently been linked to the development of age-related macular degeneration. Children’s ocular lenses are thought to transmit much more HEV light than adults’, so sunglasses are particularly necessary for them.

Make sure your sunglasses prescription is up to date and good for looking at a computer screen. If your eye strain won’t go away, consult your doctor for more guidelines regarding your vision or the sunglasses.

There has been some speculation suggesting that sunglasses promote skin cancer. This is because the eyes are fooled into making less melanocyte-stimulating hormone. The only way to assess the protective power of sunglasses is to have the lens measured, either by the manufacturer or by an experienced optician.

With sunny days ahead of us, it’s finally time to bring out our favorite eco friendly sunglasses! We love frames made of sustainable materials like cork, recycled wood, and bamboo. Bamboo As the fastest growing wood in the world, bamboo is an excellent material for sunglasses designed. It’s stronger than steel, lighter, lasts longer, can withstand extremes, and doesn’t need to be replanted. It’s also water-resistant, floatable, and has a beautiful wood grain pattern. It’s also reusable, biodegradable, good at insulating, and fire and flood resistant.

Contact lenses are commonly worn for a persuasive and fashionable effect, but they put you at risk for a variety of serious conditions, including eye infections and corneal ulcers. Contact lenses that have been torn have rough edges that can scratch the eye.

These conditions can grow rapidly and become very severe, potentially resulting in blindness. As a result, it is always a good idea to switch to eco-friendly sunglasses because we are aware of the advantages of doing so while still preventing a long list of adverse effects.
