Mondays are usually not a reason to celebrate, but this Monday, June 27, is a holiday worth all the hoopla! National Sunglasses Day marks a date to shine some light on the importance of wearing shades, and not only because they are super trendy, but because of all the health benefits they provide, too. No matter what time of year it is, sunglasses are always essential for blocking out harmful UV rays, which can damage eyes and lead to serious health problems like cataracts, macular degeneration, abnormal growths and even cancer. Popping on a pair of shades before you leave the house can make a world of a difference, especially with all the great lens technology out there today. Lucky for you, we’ve got the low-down on some of the top protective sunnies for summer (and beyond!). To boot, you don’t have to sacrifice style for protection – there are lots of fashion-forward options available, so guys and gals alike can find a pair (or a few pairs!) that suits them, while giving them the peace of mind that their eyes are protected. Take a look at these shades below.
