Remember my tips for Healthy Eyesight? One of the most important ways to protect your vision, especially here in San Diego, is to make sure you wear UV-protective eyewear at all times when outside or driving. Why? I’ve seen so many people here with conditions like pingueculum and pterygium caused by years of sun exposure, and those who go out on the water frequently get the biggest dose of those damaging UV rays.
Maybe you’d like to wear sunglasses when you’re out on the water but are sick of losing your favorite shades when you’re boating or waterskiing. Don’t lose your sunglasses in the water again. Jet ski world champion Tommy “the Bomber” Bonacci has patented and released a line of “Bomber” sunglasses that are created specifically for active sports in and out of the water.
What makes them so great? They come with a patented foam lining – this means that they float even when they fall off into the water. The foam also lends cushion to the frame so that the shades fit snugly against your head. The snug fit keeps the sunglasses on better, and keeps more of the sun and wind out of your eyes. The lenses are polarized and the manufacturer says they carry 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays and are shatterproof.
Whether you’re an active sports enthusiast or not, these floating shades seem to be pretty handy in the water and great for protecting your eyes!
