National Sunglasses Day


Today on June 27th, we celebrate National Sunglasses Day!

Created by The Vision Council, the leading trade association for the optical industry, this National Sunglasses Day celebrates the importance of wearing “shades” to protect the eyes from the sun’s harsh ultraviolet (UV) rays. So how can you celebrate with us at SafeVision? Here are a few ideas:

How to Celebrate National Sunglasses Day

  1. Wear sunglasses! Sunglasses are essential to protect our eyes from harmful UV rays. While it may not always be hot out, the sun’s rays are always shining, which means sunglasses should be worn year-round when it’s sunny.
  2. Purchase a new pair of prescription eyewear from SafeVision with UVA & UVB ray protection! We have a wide selection of safety eyewear for both men and women, and every pair has the option to add polarized lenses to block UV rays! They also reduce distracting glare from reflective surfaces like water, snow, and even the road. We offer eyewear that works both on and off the job and keeps your vision protected. We offer polarized lenses in brown, green, and gray PLUS polarized sunglass lenses with silver, gold, or blue mirrors too!
  1. Make UV protection a family affair. UV damage is cumulative, occurring over a lifetime of exposure. Children are extra vulnerable, so teach them to wear sunglasses early on! This is recommended to help mitigate problems in the future.
  2. Share a selfie. Take a picture of yourself in your sunglasses and share your favorite pairs with us! Use the hashtags #NationalSunglassesDay, #SunglassSelfie, and #SafeVision. Tag us on social media as well @SafeVisionLLC.
  3. Talk to your friends, coworkers, your boss, and/or your employees about the importance of keeping your eyes protected. Discuss your eyewear habits together and create a plan to better protect your vision with sunglasses! At SafeVision we recommend an “everyday” pair of prescription safety eyewear and a second pair of sunwear. We offer prescription safety eyewear programs which include sun wear that meet ANSI Z87.1 standards. Check out to view our selection from PENTAX or Wiley X styles and to learn more.


Happy National Sunglasses Day from all of us at SafeVision!
