Sun Expressions in Historic Downtown Hanover, PA has joined

Finding the best sunglasses for your fun in the sun.

You've probably heard how it is becoming increasingly more important to protect your skin from exposure to the sun when you are outdoors. That is also very true for your eyes. The same damaging rays that attack the skin can lead to long term vision problems if your eyes are not properly protected.


Sunburn of the cornea is a painful condition that can possibly include some loss of vision, perhaps temporary. It is a dangerous problem that is hurting a lot of people. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation burns the inside of your eyes and is strongest between 10 am and 4pm. Anyone who spends time outdoors during these hours is at risk. If the sunlight is reflected off of the water, concrete, car windshields, sand or snow, the intensity of the UV exposure increases dramatically.

Ultraviolet Radiation

Sunlight has UVA and UVB radiation. You want to get sunglasses that block both. The color tinting is not as important as the TV commercials would have you believe. It is important that when you look through your sunglasses that colors are not distorted. You do want to recognize traffic signals and stop lights. Green, brown, amber and grey tinted sunglasses work well for driving.

Come see the selection that we have and we can help you find the pair that is right for you.

If you are going to the beach, participating in snow sports, driving, going fishing or farming, you are in a high-risk activity that demands first-rate protection of one of the most valuable gifts that you have - your sight!
