Its like this, I figure we have one set of eyes. We need them all the time. When on adventures, running rivers or each and every day. I guess it just doesn’t matter, we need our eyes.
Ive been struggling with how to protect my eyes on the water, sure a visor on my helmet will help, but you still get the light bouncing of the water, so a solution was needed. Sea Specs glasses have been proven time and again with friends, so I was intrigued by them. These glasses have a very proven record and are seen on many athletes around the world – from kite surfers to river guides.
I will not say what doesn’t need to be said, these glasses work, they are brilliant. No’ if and or but’. The fit is good, even under a helmet and they not only do the job well but they look quite dapper. They float, have a built in strap, what more is needed. I have one regret. I just wish I had these for the last 10 years.
I am now convinced that having eye wear on the water is a good thing, although perhaps not in rain soak Wales.
I figure why risk your eyes ? If you need convincing about the damage your eyes get read on.
Prolonged and repeated exposure to the sun and wind can cause numerous eye problems, all of which are uncomfortable… some can even be dangerous. Many people are not aware that the sun’s harmful rays can cause the eye to become sunburned. Sunburned eyes are very uncomfortable, and along with wind exposure, can easily dry out the surface of the eye. This makes the eyes extremely vulnerable to various eye health issues.
Irritation from wind and prolonged exposure to sunlight, especially UV rays are considered to be the precursor to Pterygiums, a growth of flesh-like tissue in the corner of the eye that grows toward the cornea. This growth can eventually cover the pupil and impair vision and must be surgically removed.
Thankfully, there are options for those of us whom want to take precautions so we can continue to enjoy ourselves in the water and on land, too!
