Summer is here and that means even more sunshine than usual. Spektacles wants to remind you to take care of your eyes out there. The best way to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays is to wear sunglasses whenever you are outside or riding in the car.

Plain old drugstore sunglasses aren’t enough for true protection. You should make sure sunglasses are rated to provide 99% or 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays. The rating should be noted on the glasses or on the tag. Glasses marked UV400 also do the job, as well as those marked ANSIZ80.3.
