Does your Dog or Cat need Sunglasses? You’ll be Surprised at the Answer

Most dogs have anatomical characteristics that offer very good protection against sun rays. Many breeds have deep inset eyes protected by a heavy brow that provides year-round shade. Dog breeds like the Golden Retriever or Labrador Retriever have a bony orbit around their eyes that encloses it and shields it from most damaging light.  Breeds like Pugs, Boston Terriers and French Bulldogs have flat-faces and their eyes are more exposed to light, wind and debris. Regardless of their anatomy, dogs and cats, just like humans, suffer from eye diseases that are directly connected or aggravated by UV exposure. Good quality polarized dog or cat sunglasses that reduce glare can make it more comfortable for your pet to enjoy the outdoors. Sunglasses can also help reduce diseases and eye injuries especially in dogs that enjoy boating, hiking, 4-wheeling or just sticking … Read More

If you are considering Transitions® Lenses, Read This

Transitions® lenses can set you back hundreds while Solar Shield fits over sunglasses cost about $20 a pair. In a car, the windshield blocks … Read More
