Top Reasons To Wear Sunglasses In Winter

We all know when the winter months are here, it gets cold and bitter, but many people forget that the sun is still about. Many people avoid wearing sunglasses in winter months as they believe they are only seasonal and are for use only in the summer months. This couldn't be further from the truth.

Here are our top reasons to continue wearing them in the cooler months of the year:

1. UV Protection for your eyes

No matter the season, the sun will always emit its UVA and UVB rays. This indicates that your sunglasses should be worn all year round. 

If you're lucky enough to experience snow in your winter months, you should know that snow and ice reflects a high amount of these UVA and UVB rays. If exposed too long to these reflections you'll suffer what is known as 'Photokeratitis' or commonly known as 'Snow Blindness'. 

So no matter if its warm or not, your eyes still need protecting.


2. Safety when behind the wheel

The winter sun is extremely low, which can cause the roads surface to shine and reflect the suns rays straight into your eyes, which can be a serious and potentially life threatening situation.

Wearing sunglasses when driving protects your eyes from being subjected to these rays, and allows you to maintain a full driving view of the road and any dangers that may emerge and to react quickly.


3. Keep eyes safe from debris and the cold air

During winter months the outside temperature drops. Meaning that the windchill from any gust or breeze can be significantly increased. This can lead to things such as Dry and Sore eyes as well as irritation from any debris that may have been blown into your eyes, this includes things such as snow.

Wearing sunglasses ensures that your eyes are protected from debris and allows your eyes to function properly without any irritation from outside elements.


4. Looking Good

Just because it's winter, doesn't mean you can't look good in your JakeEllis sunglasses.

No matter the weather. Look good all year round.



We know it's winter and the sun isn't about as much. But next time you pass on picking up a pair of sunglasses, just read this Blog and hopefully it will show you it is far more safer to have a pair on you all year round, rather than just the summer months.
