Sunglasses Protect Your eyes from winter uv
No matter what time of year, your eyes need protection from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays.
UV rays are intensified in the winter because sunlight bounces off wet and icy surfaces producing a glare and doubling UV exposure.

Sunglasses are a Must for Winter Activities
Whether the sun is fully visible or not, being on or near snow or ice increases the amount of UV radiation you receive. Additionally, many winter activities happen at high altitudes where the suns UV rays are stronger. It’s important to remember that all outdoor leisure and exercise (regardless of season) call for proper eyewear to keep activities easy on the eyes. This applies to all ages.

Sunglasses help prevent snow blindness
As previously mentioned, being on or near snow or ice increases UV exposure, and high altitude winter activities increase UV strength. When combined, reflective surfaces, and high altitudes, double your risk of getting sunburned eyes, or a temporary loss of vision, known as snow blindness.
In addition to preventing snow blindness, wearing sunglasses (especially polarized) from November through March can help reduce winter glare and vision-related headaches.

Eye Disease is a year round thing
Many eye diseases are related to sun and UV exposure. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world, it is believed that UVB rays enhance this. Macular degeneration can also occur due to unprotected sun exposures, as well as pinguecula and pterygia, which cause raised yellowish bumps on the whites of your eyes.
