Hats Enhance Eyeshade Protection

Summer sun eye protection includes both sunglasses and hats, says Sara Moore, a health educator at the Wellness Center in southern California.

In a Poly Post article, she says “you really need glasses that offer 100 percent protection” in order to best safeguard your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays.

But that’s not all:

Personally, when I’m driving or walking around outside for an extended period of time, I also like to wear hats,” said Moore, “If you are in the sun for an extended period you should probably wear a hat as well because sun can get in from the sides of your glasses and cause damage even if you glasses offer 100 percent UVA and UVB protection.

Women seem to get this rather symbiotic association between hats and sunglasses; men, on the other hand, tend to get a little confused. From one guy to another, don’t try to understand: just wear the glasses with your hat. It’s a relationship thing.
