Are Sunglasses Part of your Spring Sports?


Natives of Bozeman Montana know when the snow & ice melt that the time has come to prepare for the next season. Store all the skiing and snowboarding gear and prepare for warmer sports. Whether you’re checking over your old hiking gear, planning out your kayaking routes, or investing in a new fishing rod, many have their sights set on their favorite hobbies. However, spring means a lot of UV radiation, so don't forget to prepare for the sunshine.

As much as rock climbers protect their hands with flexible, climbing gloves, and hikers find the sturdiest, most durable pair of boots, polarized sunglasses protect your eyesight. UV rays can increase the risk of ocular diseases just by being outside for 15 minutes. Sunglasses are one of the most overlooked methods of protecting your health. While women tend to sport sunglasses for their fashion, men generally avoid investing in a pair of polarized sunglasses. We recommend that if you’re an active, outdoorsman who enjoys being in the sun, speak with our eye doctor. During an eye exam, you can learn about the many benefits polarized sunglasses offer.

Sunglasses with polarization can:

  • Block glare
  • Improve visibility
  • Increase reaction time
  • Reduce dryness
  • Reduce sunburns around or on the eyes
  • Block out UVA and UVB radiation

If you're looking for sports equipment this year, come to Bridger Eye care  to learn about polarized sunglasses and how they can best enhance your summer activities.
