Why is UV400 protection in sunglasses necessary?

UV400 protection

UV400 protection is a measure of sunglasses' ability to block the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Sunglasses that offer UV400 protection are capable of blocking short and long wavelength UV rays, which means they block 99-100% of both UVA and UVB rays.

UV rays are harmful to our eyes, and prolonged exposure to them can have serious consequences, including cataracts, macular degeneration, and skin cancer on the eyelids. Therefore, it is essential that the sunglasses we buy offer adequate protection against UV rays.

In addition to blocking UV rays, UV400 protection also helps reduce eye fatigue and prevent headaches associated with prolonged sun exposure. By protecting your eyes from the sun's harmful radiation, you'll also be protecting your long-term vision so you can enjoy life without worrying about UV damage.

When buying sunglasses with UV400 protection, it is important to make sure that they meet the appropriate safety standards and have been tested in a certified laboratory. We will know that the sunglasses meet safety standards by including a label or sticker that informs us of the UV400 protection, which will allow us to know that we are buying quality sunglasses that will protect us from UV rays.
