Wearing sunglasses is very important in the North Texas sunshine. Sunglasses not only make it easier to see when it is too bright outside, but they also block damaging UV rays that can leave damage in your eyes.
Short term damage is not such a big deal. Your eyes may feel sore temporarily or red from looking at the sun too much. The real problem is the long term damage that you can get. Not wearing sufficient protection on your eyes on the bright summer days can lead to similar conditions that your skin suffers, or worse, things like cataracts and other cancers of the eye.
Even the cheapest sunglasses have UV protection. Keep your eyes protected this summer with a pair of sunglasses. Get a new pair of them for yourself. Get a pair for your husband and kids. They will all thank you later. Not only will you keep your eyes cool, you might even look cool as well!
