Prescription Ski Goggles: Safety on the Slopes & Sun Protection

January 20, 2023 By 0 Comments

Are you eager to get out on the slopes and cruise through the fresh powder? Don’t leave home without a pair of prescription ski goggles! Denver, Colorado sits at a mile high and once you go into the mountains, the elevation increases substantially, making UV rays an even greater risk. It’s important to take steps to protect your eyes from UV rays and blinding sun glare. At Stack Optical, we offer a variety of options for prescription ski goggles that can help you see better and stay safe on the slopes.

Why You Need Prescription Ski Goggles this Season

Hello, my name is Allen Stack and I’m the owner of Stack Optical. We are a small, locally owned business that sells prescription eyewear in Denver, Colorado. Today, I’d like to talk to you about the importance of wearing prescription ski goggles.

Outdoor sports like snowboarding, skiing, and sledding can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to enjoy them safely. You don’t want your next ski trip to be your last! Factors like sun glare, UV rays, and snow blindness can put your health and safety at risk and can even lead to skiing accidents or eye disease. The prescription ski goggles available at our Denver location can help minimize these risks and keep you safe when you’re outdoors.

UVA/UVB Protection for Your Eyes

UV rays are always a concern when you’re outdoors, but the risk increases substantially when you go up higher in elevation. Overexposure to UVA and UVB rays can cause sunburns, cataracts, macular degeneration, cancer, and other health problems. Prescription ski goggles with UV protection can guard your eyes from the sun and keep you safe when you’re outdoors.

Improve Your Visibility While Skiing

Another reason that we recommend this type of eyewear is because it improves your visibility. If you’re an avid skier, you’ve probably heard your fair share of horror stories about skiing accidents or even witnessed one in-person. Snow blindness is a real thing and can make it difficult for you to see other skiers or objects that may be in your way. Our prescription ski goggles help eliminate glare, thus improving your skiing visibility and safety.

Protect Your Eyes from Glare

Glare not only impacts your visibility when skiing, but can also be damaging to your health. It causes eye fatigue, headaches, and squinting. You may even experience burning or itching as well as watery or dry eyes as a result of eye strain. Wearing protective eyewear while skiing or snowboarding can help you avoid these symptoms and keep your eyes healthy.
