Every year on June 27th, we celebrate National Sunglasses Day! What better time than the summer to appreciate our favorite fashion accessories while spreading awareness about the importance of protecting your eyes from the sun? Everyone at Pugs is serious about providing the best affordable sunglasses to help keep your eyes healthy and looking cool!


While it's easy to think you don't need to wear sunglasses when it's cloudy, or during the winter, sunglasses are an important way to protect your eyes all year long. We all understand the dangers of UV radiation when it comes to sunburns and skin cancer, but these wavelengths can be very harmful to your eyes as well. When unfiltered, the sun's UV rays can quickly cause swelling, redness, and hypersensitivity. Years of exposure can lead to cancer, or accelerate conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration. Wearing UV-blocking sunglasses can help filter the dangerous rays and keep your eyes happy and healthy, no matter how sunny or cloudy it is. 


So join us in celebrating National Sunglasses Day, not only as a way to show off your favorite shades, but to help spread awareness about the dangers of UV radiation and how sunglasses can help protect you!


Best way to spread the word is through social media! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and tag us in your sunglasses pictures with #NationalSunglassesDay. We'll be sharing our favorites all day!
