The Classic Sunglasses You Need Now

March 2017Words by Mr Shane C Kurup

Now the sun has finally decided to make an appearance, it’s time you stopped squinting and put some sunglasses on. Did you know that your eyeballs can actually get sunburnt? Photokeratitis – to use the correct medical term – can be brought on by too much UV exposure, and can also lead to macular (the central part of the retina) degeneration and cataracts. Ouch. Clearly, wearing shades isn’t just a question of vanity. Health warnings aside, we’d recommend investing in a pair of sunglasses that will stand the test of time, so here are three styles which you’ll be wearing for years to come (providing you don’t lose them, of course).
