I'm not so really into sunglasses. I used to think that people just have that to look cool and fashionable, that's why sometimes seeing people wear that irks me.
Until recently I noticed that my eyes get to be drier when I commute via jeepney. So I tend to blink frequently to keep the moist, aside from that I think my eyes are becoming more sensitive to light. Well, who wouldn't... I travel 12 noon..so the sun is really scorching.
So I did some research, and well I've found out that it's really not ideal to go out at around 11am to 3pm because of the high UV of the sun. And if ever you need to go out you should wear some protection for your eyes -sunglasses.
So ironic. The thing I hate is the one I would be needing. That's why now I wear it, even if I don't want to, because I love my eyes. I should take care of them.
UV rays could have permanent damage to our eyes. And because it's invisible to us we can't see how high it's rate is. But we should be wary of it, especially now that the ozone is continuously depleting, more harmful rays from the sun penetrates the earth.
Hate to admit it but sunglasses, I think would be a should-have when you go out especially during a hot sunny afternoon.
