We all know skin can be burned if it is exposed to the sun for some time, but apart from that, only a few people realize that their eyes are also vulnerable to this exposure. The ultraviolet rays from the sun are most damaging to the human body.
Online shopping today is going way to high and achieving new milestones every day, especially in India where people like to buy different things at a relatively very low price. It’s a human nature that sometimes whenever we see our profit while buying things we straight away go for that deal without even looking at the quality of the product and this thing is very popular among the middle-class persons.
What are the UV Rays?
These are the ultraviolet rays that come to earth from the Light source SUN. Basically, two of them are very harmful to human life on earth they are – UVA and UVB. They can do more harm to our eyes as a comparison to other body parts. In a shortage of a powerful UV protection, people are letting harmful UV light into their eyes.
Are they really harmful to our eyes?
Sunglasses that don’t have the ability to block UV rays may sometimes offer you relief from visible light, but the sudden exposure to UVA Rays and UVB Rays can be more harmful. Sunglasses without powerful protection from both UVA and UVB rays didn’t do anything at all they simply filter out the ambient light of the sun and simply can lower the SUN’s glare.
Apart from this additional exposure to both UVA and UVB rays can put you in a risk of cataracts i.e. the clouding of the lens, macular pain in eyes and a very rare type of cancer of eyes. Today it is getting very difficult to put the safety message across the globe because sunglasses are now been treated as fashionable products rather than being eye protection.
Does the price matters?
IT is not always true that high price tags of any product will give you better quality. UV protection costs only some pennies so it is not the price that concerned here but sometimes inexpensive products may have the marginal quality of optics. They don’t do anything but it can be leading to a headache, laziness etc.
Some checks for Authenticity
You should always look for the quality of the metal used in the corners of glasses. They should be cleaned and not glued or should not be held in place with low-quality plastic.
Almost every model of glasses by Ray Ban should have a small; almost negligible sized “RB” will be attached in the form of a trademark of a Ray-Ban in front on the lenses. This should be very small and also to the edge of the lens.
Mostly Ray ban glasses are made from high-quality materials even the part of a frame that site on our nose should give you a feel of comfort when wearing it. They should not feel easy to remove, fragile or slimy. There is a small RB (Ray Ban) logo attached to every genuine product of Ray Ban glasses in the center of nose pads.
