- With Sun Safety Week Right Around the Corner, Cinzia Designs Founder Cynthia Shapiro Reveals the Importance in Protecting Your Eyes ... In Style
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Cinzia Designs announces the Top 5 Tips for protecting your eyes in style this summer. Each summer the Sun Safety Alliance designates a week to promote sun safety awareness. This year Sun Safety Week is June 1st through June 7th. In relation to the safety observance week, Cynthia Shapiro, optical industry expert and Founder of Cinzia Designs, stresses the importance of protecting your eyes from potential sun damage.
According to the Vision Learning Center, many problems can occur from long-term exposure to UV rays including cataracts, macular degeneration, scaring, or skin cancer. These defects can be avoided by following simple steps to protecting your eyes.
Cinzia Designs Founder Cynthia Shapiro reveals her "Top 5 Tips" to
protect your eyes this summer:
1. Make it an All Day Affair: Sunglasses play an important role in
protecting the eyes by filtering out harmful UV rays. This means
glasses should be worn at all times when outdoors, even in the early
morning or late afternoon hours. Even though the sun looks dim at these
times it is still spouting out harmful rays.
2. Go Big to Stay Young: Larger frames are in style right now and that is
a good thing! The more area your glasses cover the better they will
protect you from sun exposure. Movie star style frames not only look
chic, but they can help fight off crow's feet, freckles and other
unsightly signs of aging.
3. Read Labels: When selecting a pair of sunglasses, make sure to pick a
pair that reduces glare, filters 99 - 100% of UV light rays and does
not distort colors. How to find these types of glasses? The reduction
of glare is most prominent with a polarized lens. To ensure the most
protection from UV rays, sunglasses will be marked with a sticker that
tells you how much UV radiation they block. Cinzia Designs offers sun
wear with polarized lenses and each pair is marked with a UV 400
sticker, which guarantees 99-100% UV light protection. Look for these
labels on your sun wear.
4. Discount Glasses Can Mean Discount Protection: It's tempting to pick up
a pair of knock-off Versace's on Venice beach -- but what are you
really buying? Chances are those cheap copies offer little to no
protection from the sun. Sunglasses do not have to be pricey -- many
stores like Target offer inexpensive and chic options that also protect
5. Love Thy Glasses: Trends come and go, but you should select a style
that truly suits your style and needs. You are much more likely to wear
your sun protection if you feel and look great in your frames. Don't
buy trendy glasses that you will never wear. Buy sunglasses that make
