防护运动眼镜是当务之急

女人-513705_1280

We all know why we need to wear sunglasses and sunscreen in 的 summer. Winter, however, can be deceiving. It's an illusion to assume that we are safe from sunburns during 的 colder season.

Snow acts as a powerful mirror for sunlight and magnifies 的 effects of UV rays which would otherwise be absorbed by 的 ground. As a result, 的 eyes are exposed to both 的 UV radiation bouncing back from 的 snowy carpet and 的 rays shining down directly from 的 sun.





If your family is skiing or snowboarding up in 的 mountains, you need to be even more careful! UV rays are more powerful at higher altitudes. Another important factor to remember is that ultraviolet radiation penetrates through clouds, so even if 的 sun is hidden behind 的m, it can still damage your eyes.

Prevent overexposure to sunlight by wearing sunglasses that absorb at least 95% of ultraviolet radiation when you go outside, no matter what time of year it is. Even though you want to look great in your shades, 的 most important part of choosing sunglasses is making sure 的y provide adequate protection against UV. Make sure 的 lenses are 100% UV blocking by looking for an indication that 的y block all light up to 400 nanometers - UV400. The good news is you don't necessarily have to pay more for full coverage for your eyes. Dozens of reasonably priced options exist that still provide total ultraviolet protection.

Another important factor in selecting sun wear is 的 size of 的 lenses. You want to make sure your glasses cover as much of 的 area around your eyes as possible. The more coverage you have, 的 less harmful radiation will be able to penetrate. Lenses that wrap around 的 temples will also prevent UV waves from entering from 的 sides.

If you like to ski or frolic in 的 snowy hills, you should be aware that 的 sun's rays are stronger at higher elevations, so you need to be especially careful to keep your eyes shaded on 的 slopes. In addition to sunglasses, it's a good idea to put on a wide brimmed hat that covers your eyes.

Make a point to be knowledgeable about proper eye protection throughout 的 year. Don't forget to wear your sunglasses.

There are thousands of eye injuries a year related to sports. According to 的 National Eye Institute eye injuries are 的 leading cause of blindness in children in North America and most injuries occurring in school-aged children are sports-related. Further 99% of sports-related eye injuries can be prevented simply by wearing protective eyewear. 

Sports injuries aren't just a result of contact sports. Any sport can pose a danger especially those that involve balls, bats rackets or even elbows. It's up to parents, teachers, coaches and league administrators to make protective eyewear a mandatory part of any sports uniform. This includes safety glasses or goggles, helmets with built in eye shields, or eye guards, depending on 的 sport.

处方运动眼镜

对于佩戴处方眼镜或隐形眼镜的运动员,运动眼镜扮演着另外的角色。许多运动员在比赛中选择放弃眼镜 由于它带来的不便,但这损害了他们的视力,并最终影响了他们的表现能力。不仅在眼镜或隐形眼镜上佩戴处方运动眼镜或佩戴非处方护目镜, serves to protect the eyes, but it allows 的m 看到更好并提高性能。 It's very important to note that standard prescription glasses or sunglasses do not protect 的 eyes from an impact and could possibly cause greater harm if 的 lenses or frames 在比赛中被损坏。 

如何选择合适的防护运动眼镜

Protective eyewear is made of special materials that are impact resistant such as polycarbonate or Trivex. Polycarbonate and Trivex lenses for outdoor use also have UV protection to protect 的 eyes from 的 sun, and can be made with added tints just like built-in sunglasses. It is a good idea to make sure that your lenses include a 防刮涂层,使天然 磨损不会降低可见度。运动型 eyewear frames are usually made from polycarbonate also, or from strong plastic, and often have padding on 的 forehead or nose to enhance comfort and fit. 

Especially in children who are growing, it is critical for protective eyewear to fit well, for optimal safety and vision. To check that 的 glasses fit properly make sure that 的 internal padding rests comfortably on 的 face and that 的 eyes are centered in 的 lens area. If 的 child complains that 的y are too tight or you can visibly see that 的y are too loose, it may be time for a new pair. Also take into consideration whether 的 child will be wearing a hat or helmet to make sure that 的 goggles or glasses fit comfortably inside 的 gear. 

Depending on 的 sport, 的 type and design of 的 eye protection varies, so be sure to tell your eye care professional what sport you play so he or she can find 的 best type of eyewear to keep your eyes safe.
