American adults are set in their ways when it comes to wearing sunglasses, wearing them most often when:
• Driving
• Walking
• Going to the beach or pool
And wearing them least often when:
• Running and biking
• Gardening
• Playing team sports
Be a rebel: wear yours every time you go outside to protect your eyes from the sun’s damaging UV rays!

Do dogs need sunglasses? Well, no, not really. Because of their shorter life span, dogs don’t develop conditions from exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays such as cataracts and macular degeneration like humans do. But pictures of dogs in sunglasses are a hoot!

Are blue eyes more sensitive to light than brown eyes? Yes. Lighter eye colors have less pigment in the iris – so more light enters the eye. If your eyes are highly sensitive to bright light, opt for darker-tinted sunglasses to maximize vision comfort outside.

When it comes to light, our eyes can be glare-sensitive, brightness-sensitive - or both. Many people are more glare sensitive than brightness sensitive. Your eye doctor can tell you where you fall on that spectrum, and recommend the best sunglasses for optimal comfort.

Polarization on lenses blocks horizontal light rays from entering the eye. Most of the glare that we encounter daily is horizontally oriented: reflections off pavement, sand, snow, water and even the hood of a car. Polarization enhances vision by eliminating this type of glare.

One option available on sunglasses is anti-reflective coatings to eliminate glare. High-end sunglass manufacturers put anti-reflective coatings on both the inside and outside of sunglass lenses. Ask your eye doctor or optician to explain the best option for your lifestyle.

Hey Millennials (those born 1980-2000): you’re the generation that’s least likely to report wearing your sunglasses “always or often.” Only 43% of you do so. We know it seems like a long trek to age 50 or 60 but trust us, you’ll get there. Put on those shades every time you go outside to protect your eyes from vision damage later in life!
