Those who live in Costa Blanca are lucky to have so many hours of sunshine.
In this way and with more than 320 days of sunshine per year, our eyes should be protected by wearing proper eye protection to shield them from ultraviolet exposure.
At Direkt Optik in Moraira, they highlight some of the serious problems that can result from not taking care of our eyes and forgetting about them under the sun.
Without sunglasses to block out those harmful UV rays, you increase the chance of developing serious health conditions such as photokeratitis (snow blindness), pterygia, pingueculae, macular degeneration, and even cataracts.
Even exposure to the sun’s high-energy visible radiation can increase the long-term risks of developing macular degeneration.
Additionally, in extreme cases, too much sun exposure to the eyes can cause cataracts of the eye which create blindness. This is especially important to consider with children because they aren’t fully aware of the way their actions can affect them later on. Also, direct sunlight onto the eyelids could turn into skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma.
At Direkt Optik, they are aware of all these problems that your eyes can suffer from so they offer a complete package including a free eye test and a great 3 for 1 offer to choose three pairs of prescription glasses for the normal price of one pair.
And the best of it is that one of the options is to have one of your pairs made into prescription sunglasses. This is great news for those who like to follow fashion, but feel they are constrained in their choices because they can’t buy off the peg sunglasses.
If you don’t require prescription glasses, Direkt Optik Moraira also offers ready-to-wear sunglasses from the biggest brands such as Ray-Ban, Michael Kors, Oakley, and Ralph Lauren, so you can protect your eyes in style!
Therefore, now is the time to embrace healthy eye habits. No matter your current age or medical history, caring for your eyes now help prevent vision problems later in life. So just don’t wait any longer and make an appointment for your eye examination. Your vision may have suffered and you may not even have noticed it.
The Direk Optik team will be happy to assist you with anything you need, whether it’s your check-up, a new pair of glasses, or that cool new pair of sunglasses now that summer is coming.
