Why on Earth would I want to buy sunglasses in winter?

I would! Let me tell you why. Last year I was out in the front yard building a snowman with the kids and my husband took our picture. All 4 of us had our eyes closed. We were squinting because the sun reflecting on the snow was blinding! This year, my entire family is wearing sunglasses all winter long.

And what about those times when you’re driving during overcast days and by the time you get home, your have a headache from straining your eyes the entire trip. There are many instances when you should wear sunglasses in winter but you might have not thought you needed them. Sunglasses with amber or “driving” lenses are great in winter because this color lens improves contrast.

Let’s face it, unlike bears, we don’t hibernate. We like to get out and about in winter. We enjoy winter activities skiing, sledding, ice-skating, strolling and window-shopping and the sun is there even if it doesn’t look like it is. The UV rays can still damage your eyes and the glare can still ‘blind’ you. Check out  HYPERLINK “http://www.solarcomfort.com” www.solarcomfort.com for some great sporty sunglasses that are both polarized to block glare and the lenses block 100% of UV rays.

I also find the cold and dry winter wind dries my eyes and makes me squint a lot. When I wear sunglasses, especially wraparound sunglasses like Solar Shields,  HYPERLINK “http://www.solarshield.com” www.solarshield.com , the wind is blocked and I squint less, which also means I will get

less wrinkles around my eyes. And to really get into the festive holiday mood, check out the Fits Over Sunglasses that are all dressed up! I’m talking bling, animal prints and beautiful colors.
