Celebrate #NationalSunglassesDay on June 27

I don't post very often about my job. But, as a practicing optometrist, one thing I make sure to discuss with all my patients is the importance of wearing sunglasses to protect eyes from UV exposure. Long term exposure to UV radiation can accelerate the development of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

Annually, The Vision Council hosts National Sunglasses Day on June 27 to remind people to wear sunglasses whenever they're outside. To celebrate, they encourage you to post a #SunglassSelfie of yourself in sunglasses to your favorite social media channel(s) and to include the #NationalSunglassesDay.

In this post, I'll be highlighting some of my favorite styles of sunglasses.

1.  Oversized Aviators

My favorite pair to wear right now are the Coach aviators that I have on in the picture above. I got them a few years ago at work. I had them add polarized lenses in a gradient tint.

I thought this pair from Tory Burch was cute and similar to what I have.


These Quay Australia from Asos are pretty nice, too.


2.  Colored Lenses

I don't really have any sunglasses with colored lenses. Unless you count the Swell sunglasses my husband stole from me. But, here are a couple pairs that I like.

Blenders Eyewear

Sonix Bellevue

3.  Round Sunglasses



And now, after browsing through all those sunglasses, I think I'll be picking up some new ones, soon. Don't forget to wear your sunglasses and post your #SunglassSelfie!
