What is UV? Understanding Ultraviolet Light and Protecting Your Eyes

Introduction: Ultraviolet (UV) light, a component of the sun's rays, is invisible yet crucial for life, but it also poses risks. In this blog, we delve into the nature of UV light and how SekelBoer's range of sunglasses can provide essential protection.


1. The Essence of UV Light: UV light is a form of electromagnetic radiation from the sun. It falls just outside the visible spectrum and is categorized into three types: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. While UV-C rays are mostly absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere, UV-A and UV-B can reach us, impacting our skin and eyes​​.


2. Implications of UV Exposure: Exposure to UV-A and UV-B rays can lead to various health issues, including skin cancer and eye damage. Understanding and protecting against these rays is crucial for our long-term health.


3. UV Protection 400: The Gold Standard in Eyewear: UV Protection 400 indicates that sunglasses block 100% of UV rays up to 400 nanometers, covering both UVA and UVB rays, offering maximum protection​​. This level of protection is considered excellent for eye health, reducing the risk of UV-related conditions like cataracts and photokeratitis​​.


4. SekelBoer's Commitment to UV Protection: At SekelBoer, we understand the importance of protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. Our sunglasses are designed to offer superior protection without compromising on style. Some standout options include:
