Have you bought cheap sunglasses of poor quality in the past because you don't see the point in demanding quality from your sunglasses? We have also done that once. But now we have learned how important it is to buy sunglasses that have UV400 to protect the eyes and we would really like to learn that from us, so that you also demand quality from your sunglasses - no matter the price.
UV400 in your sunglasses works for the eyes as sunscreen does for the skin. It protects against the harmful UV rays emitted by the sun.
Without UV protection, the sun can damage your eyes both temporarily and long-term. That is why we naturally have 100% UV400 in ALL our sunglasses.
Intense UV exposure can cause problems such as swollen, bloodshot and photosensitive eyes. Your eyes can also, after just a few hours in the sun without protection, experience what is colloquially called snow blindness, which is the equivalent of a sunburn of the skin, just in the eye. This means that, like a sunburn, it goes away after a day or two, but it can be very painful.
The complications that can occur in the long term are many and serious. They are the biggest reason why we need to protect our eyes from the sun.
Cancer is one of the worst, but also typical complications with UV rays in and around the eye. There is cancer both in the eye and around the eye. Between 70-80 cases of eye cancer are diagnosed each year. However, there are between 400-600 Danes who are operated on every year for skin cancer on the eyelid caused by UV radiation.
