The winter sun can be as harsh as the summer sun, but we don’t always realize the damaging effects that it can have when the air is cold. From sunburns to chapped lips, and the worst of all, harsh glare that hurts your eyes and makes it hard to see, winter can be worse than summer. Whether you are on the mountain skiing or snowboarding, on the hiking trail with family or friends, or on the road driving to grandma’s house, affordable polarized sunglasses can keep the sun from damaging your eyes and help you see clearly in the harshest glare. The examples of the negative can be endless, but the resounding solution is a quality pair of glasses to shield your sensitive eyes.


Stay safe on the mountains

We have all been to the mountains on those perfect bluebird days when the snow is brilliantly white and the sun is shining brightly. The only bad thing about those days is the glare that pains your eyes all day from the white snow bouncing the sun's light up into your eyes. Not being able to see clearly is very dangerous when you are skiing or snowboarding. Grab a good pair of polarized sunglasses or goggles that will keep you safe and having a great time in the snow.

Hiking is an amazing exercise that is enjoyed by many. The beautiful cloudless skies and gorgeous views are what keep people coming back for more, year after year. During the winter, the views can be even better with snowcapped mountains and tall evergreen trees sprinkled with beautiful white snow. With a good pair of polarized sunglasses, you can enjoy these views without having to squint or shield your eyes. Not to mention that some lenses even enhance the beautiful colors of nature.

Keep your eyes on the road

The most dangerous time to have glare effect your vision is while you’re driving. Vision is paramount to safe driving. In fact (just in case you were unaware), you have to take a vision test in order to get approved for a driver’s license in most states.  So, once you’re approved and get on the road, make sure you always have a good pair of polarized sunglasses in your car. Have you ever experience the annoying and disorienting glare from the sun off of the rear of the car in front of you? Yeah, everyone has! This could be one of the most frustrating things while in the car, but a good pair of sunglasses can eliminate the problem.
