Things to Consider Before Buying Glasses
The glasses start to be seen in this days that the summer months are getting closer. Especially the hawkers, selling glasses, are at almost every corner. How much do we pay attention when we buying or using prescription glasses in every summer? Or should we pay attention?
Even though we are not aware, we put our eyes at risk by using cheap eyeglasses every summer. Knowingly or unknowingly, we do this. We pay attention to the sun protection factor of our sun cream when we go see, but when we take sunglasses we do not pay attention to the degree of its blocking the ultraviolet rays, we make our eyes an instrument of a gambling unconsciously.
Well, why are the original glasses so much more expensive than the glasses sold in the market? Why we become a penny poacher when it comes to buying a sunglass which will be used many times while paying pots of money for sun cream even though it is going to be. I think this is due to the fact that danger and damage cannot be recognized.
Just as there are damages on the skins that are directly exposed to the sun, similarly, our eyes tries to protect itself by shorten itself and tries to reduce the sunlight to the minimum.
Then, what happens in the eyes when we buy cheap glasses, what are the possible dangers waiting for us?
If you buy your glasses from a hawker, you will leave your eyes vulnerable. Because it is ultraviolet rays, not the light that will harm your eyes. When you wear eyeglasses that you bought from a hawker, you don’t block the ultraviolet rays, but you block the light and you put your eyes at risk of the danger that will change from person to person. This is a changing situation over time. Besides, I do not mention about whether the glasses are not cut evenly, or the light does not reach your eyes well.
The places where ultraviolet rays increase and are most effective are snowy places and beaches, in short, places where there is the reflection. In addition, the hours of the day, when the sun shines steadily at noon is the time these rays rise.
The important thing is not that the blockage that sunglass apply to the light, it is the blockage applied to the ultraviolet rays.
Instead of buying the fake of expensive glasses, it is better that you buy cheap but original glasses.
