At Yandell Eyecare, we provide our patients with the best in sunglasses in Morristown TN and other eyewear. Every year people suffer damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays, which are bad for our skin but just as bad for our eyes. Our sunglasses help protect eyes from harmful UV rays while acting as a fashionable accessory. Without sunglasses, eyes can suffer from diseases such as cataracts, macular degeneration and other conditions.
Cataracts are a clouding of the lens in the eye and can blur vision and cause vision loss. 20% of cataract cases are caused by too much UV exposure. Macular degeneration results from damage done to the retina and damages central vision as well. It is the leading cause of blindness in the U.S., and can happen as a result of UV overexposure. Pterygium is another eye disease resulting from UV rays. In this condition, tissues grow over the eye’s white surface and can cause astigmatism. This is why it’s important to shop for sunglasses in Morristown TN and to look for sunglasses that can block out 99 to 100% of all UVA and UVB radiation. This helps to protect eyes as well as the skin around the eyes. The skin around the eyes is delicate and can be susceptible to skin cancer from UV rays as well.
At Yandell Eyecare, our sunglasses in Morristown TN all feature a protective and strong UV coating in order to ward off harmful rays from the sun. We also offer a fully stocked eyewear selection as well. We recommend transitional sunglasses for those who often go in and out of doors and who cannot wear contact lenses. Transitionals are shaded glasses that lighten and darken depending on the lighting situation. Wearers can wear the glasses indoors as regular eyeglasses, and when they walk outside, the lenses darken into shades. They are easy and convenient and a great way to have prescription lenses and sunglasses at the same time. Our professional eyewear staff can help assist you with the selection of the best glasses that are right for your face and prescription as well. We have the best in name brand frames as well as budget friendly frames to fit everyone’s needs.
