[Editorial] All About SunGlasses

Today's topic will be sunglasses. I am pretty sure almost every one of us owns at least a pair, regardless of the brands and price.

Sunglasses are was initially meant to protect our precious eyes from the harmful sun rays. But as the years goes by, sunglasses are no longer just an eye wear to protect our eyes, but also as a fashion statement. 

Since the 1940s, sunglasses have become a popular fashion accessory for many, especially on the beach. It was primarily used by celebrities and film actors to mask their identity since long. Put aside fashion accessory, it is really important to have a pair of sunglasses with us.


  • UV Protection:  It helps protect our eyes against UV, a harmful radiation that can cause cataracts. 
  • Blue light Protection: It helps protect against "blue light" from the solar spectrum, which could increase your risk of macular degeneration.
