I heard the song “I Wear My Sunglasses At Night” while driving in my car the other day and listening to the radio. It’s still a catchy tune, but isn’t it ironic how easy it is to dismiss how important sunglasses are?  People still tend to think of them as merely a fashion accessory, but they’re much more than that. Much more.

Dr. Baseem Wahab has the perfect pair of sunglasses for you!

When it comes to having happier, healthier eyes, remember that sunglasses reduce glare, especially if you’re spending time around the pool or late during the summer months. And do you remember the windy day we had the other day? Sunglasses will help protect your eyes from any dust and debris the wind kicks around. It’s just proof that a little prevention can go a long way.

Also, did you know that ultraviolet radiation in the summer is three times higher than during the winter? And UV radiation can also cause the skin around your eyes, which is more delicate than other areas of your face, to wrinkle if you leave it exposed to sunlight too long? Letting the sun prematurely age your skin and eyes when there’s a solution at hand doesn’t seem to make much sense.

Those of you who suffer from headaches might be interested to know that sunglasses can reduce eyestrain and the headaches associated with it (eyestrain). What’s not to love about not having headache? Keep in mind, too, that the staff at SEEN Vision Care in Dearborn, Michigan, will help outfit you with the right pair of sunglasses that’ll enhance your looks with style and protect your eyes!

Some people read the sports section of the paper each morning. I admit I do, too, but I’m also always on the lookout for articles and information to pass along to my clients here at SEEN Vision Care in Dearborn, Michigan. The way the weather has been here over the past few months has actually made people somewhat erratic in making appointments for their eyes, especially when it comes to sunglasses. It’s overcast one day, sunny the next, snowing another, windy the day after that and the variety never seems to end. Regardless of how the weather is today and tomorrow, you need to protect your eyes in the coming summer months.

Contact Dr. Baseem Wahab at SEEN Vision Care for your summer sunglasses!

I came across a health and fitness article last week discussing reasons why you should wear sunglasses in the summer. Did you know that if you’re not in the habit of wearing sunglasses that you can get a sunburned cornea? Even worse, it’s even possible to develop skin cancer of the eyelids. Nobody wants these things to happen and we all know what the solution is.

However, while wearing sunglasses can help, there’s more to it than that. Do you know what level of UV protection your glasses are? How about the tint? These are all things addressed in the ENews Park Forest article “Top Five Ways to Sunblock Your Eyes this Summer.” I urge you to read it and also make an appointment with SEEN Vision Care today! We can make sure your sunglasses do everything they’re supposed to in order to keep you safe!

Give us a call at 313-278-SEEN and let us help your eyes before you head out for those sunny afternoons in the yard or at the beach.
