4 Reasons to Celebrate National Eyewear Day
Protect Your Eyes & Enhance Your View with Maui Jim
It might not make your favorite holiday list, but National Eyewear Day (June 6) is near the top of ours. We can all use a reminder of just how important eye health is — and how the right eyewear can improve not just our vision but our overall health. Here are four reasons to celebrate National Eyewear Day with a pair of Maui Jim eyeglasses or sunglasses:
- Up the contrast: When you choose Maui Jim eyeglasses with our proprietary High Contrast Lens, you’ll see the difference right away — day and night. More contrast makes it easier to read fine print, reducing eyestrain and headaches. Driving at night is safer and more comfortable, thanks to less glare from headlights and streetlights.
- Block out blue: Every pair of Maui Jim polarized sunglasses and our Maui Blue Light Protect clear lenses filter out high energy visible (HEV) light. Better known as harmful blue light — and produced by the digital screens many of us stare at for hours every day — HEV causes eyestrain, headaches, tired eyes and blurred vision. It can even lead to retinal damage over time. Put a stop to all that with our all-day blue light protection.
- Say no to UV: All Maui Jim lenses — eyeglasses and sunglasses — deliver 100% UV protection. Why is that important? UV rays can cause sunburn of the eyes (ouch!), cataracts, macular degeneration and cancer.
- Stop skin cancer: Did you know 5-10% of skin cancer occurs around the eyes? Maui Jim polarized sunglasses hold the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation. Wear them every day — even on overcast days — to protect the eyes and surrounding skin.
Here’s another great way to celebrate National Eyewear Day — with a new pair of Maui Jim eyeglasses or sunglasses that will enhance your view today and for years to come. Start shopping!
