Sunglasses are some of the best tools to help you see clearly and improve your eye health. At Hester Eye Associates PC, our optometrist and the rest of our staff are here to help provide you with eye care, eye exam appointments, and sunglasses so you can protect your precious eyes. If you're looking for help in Kennesaw, GA, read on below to see how we can help.


Regular Sunglasses Vs. Polarized Sunglasses

When looking for sunglasses, you'll have to make a choice between regular lenses and polarized lenses. Regular sunglass lenses provide some protection from UV rays, but they don't block out glare or reduce the amount of brightness that can reach your eyes. On the other hand, polarized sunglasses contain special filters that block out most of the glare and brightness, making them a good choice for high-intensity activities like snowboarding or boating.

Benefits of Sunglasses

Sunglasses don't just make you look cool, they can also help protect your eyes from the sun's UV rays. These UV rays can cause serious damage to both the cornea and lens of your eye if exposed for too long. By wearing sunglasses with a high-quality UV protection rating, you can reduce the risk of these harmful effects. In addition, sunglasses can also help reduce eye strain caused by bright lights.

At Hester Eye Associates PC, we have a wide selection of sunglasses available in store. Our experienced optometrist can help you find the right pair for your needs and lifestyle so you can look great while protecting your eyes from the sun's UV rays.
