Are you allergic to metal sunglasses? Why should you wear sunglasses?

The sun supplies light and heat which makes it possible for life to exist on Earth. Plants need sunlight to grow and animals and humans need plants for food and the oxygen they produce. The heat from the Sun keeps the Earth from freezing. 

It supplies energy to the Earth in the form of visible light that you can see, infrared radiation that you feel as heat, and rays of UV radiation that you can’t see or feel. Fortunately, the Earth’s atmosphere protects us from most UV radiation. Sunlight is essential for human health and well-being.

The health benefits of sunlight include generating the production of vitamin D, supporting bone health, lowering blood pressure, preventing disease, and promoting good mental health.  While we need some exposure to sunlight to help our bodies make vitamin D, too much UV is dangerous.

Your eyes can be damaged from ultraviolet rays. In particular, UV-A and UV-B rays from the sun can cause short- and long-term damage to your eyes and affect your vision. Although the sun also emits UV-C radiation, those rays are absorbed by the ozone layer and don't damage your eyes.

When you spend time in the sun without adequate protection, you may be more likely to develop a variety of eye issues, ranging from sunburns to cataracts. Eye conditions associated with sun exposure include photokeratitis which occurs when your corneas are exposed to intense sunlight.

What happens when you don’t wear sunglasses? Sunglasses aren’t just a fashion statement. Wearing sunglasses on a regular basis is a simple way to protect your vision and avoid common eye diseases and conditions. Too much sun is just as bad for your eyes as it is for your skin.

During summertime, sunglasses are considered as classic accessories! They are not only essential to cover your eyes from harmful rays from the sun, but they are also perfect to improve your style and harmonize your outfit.

We’ve all heard the phrase, “a healthy tan,” but there is no such thing. Tanning is your body's attempt to protect itself from being damaged by ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

If you have an allergy to wearing metal sunglasses, it can wreak havoc on your skin. Metal sunglasses can cause an itchy red rash called allergic contact dermatitis to develop.   Over 70,000,000 people in the United States are affected by this condition.

Protecting your eyes from harmful rays from the sun is the main reason for wearing sunglasses. High quality sunglasses allow you to protect your eyes, all when enjoying perfect vision without glares or reflections.  There is some great news!  Wood is the answer to the problem of allergic contact dermatitis.  It has a different texture, grain and color, and that is why wood is a very unique material for making sunglass frames. No two pairs of wooden sunglasses look alike because they are made from authentic natural wood. Each pair is one of its kind and unique.

At Ligglio,, we offer five different selections of beautiful wooden sunglasses.
