Sunglasses are some of our favorite accessories. We wear them to the beach, while we drive, while we play sports — basically any time we’re outside and the sun is out. What you might not know or think about is that you can get replacement lenses for sunglasses. Here are some reasons that you might want to.
If your sunglass lenses get scratched or damaged there is no sense in throwing out a perfectly good pair of sunglasses. Especially if they are a nice designer pair, that can be a lot of money that is essentially just thrown in the trash.
Another reason you might consider replacing sunglass lenses is to get replacement polarized lenses. If you have cheap lenses in your sunglasses, then your eyes and the surrounding areas are not getting the protection they need from the sun. UV rays from the sun can cause macular degeneration, cataracts, and even cancer in the thin skin around the eyes. Polarized replacement lenses will protect your eyes and skin from those harmful UV rays.
Sunglass lens replacement is also environmentally friendly. People buy billions of dollars worth of sunglasses every year, and every 14 seconds someone breaks or loses their sunglasses. Every 14 seconds adds up to a lot of damaged sunglasses, and many of them just end up in the trash. Replacing sunglass lenses that are scratched or getting other repairs means that those sunglasses will not end up in a landfill any time soon. More information like this: www.thesunglassfix.com
