I have neglected my eyes for a really really long time.  I wore glasses when I was younger, wore the same pair for way too long, lost them, and then never replaced them.  Somehow I figured squinting was a much better solution than making an eye appointment.  Well, thanks to the lovely people at Iris Eyewear, I am happy to say, I can see!

I now have not only a pair of glasses, but also a pair of SPY prescription sunnies!  My SPY sunnies are their new Happy Lens glasses.  These glasses let in the good rays and , have an uplifting effect on mood, and also block out the bad rays.  I absolutely love them!  I mean, who doesn’t want to add a bit more happy to their day?  Check out this video {here} to see how they work.

I was so impressed with all the information I received in how to better take care of not only my eyes, but my daughter’s too.  Diet obviously plays a huge roll, but so does our eyewear.  My biggest “Ah-Ha” moment came from this tip….

Cheap sunnies usually offer no UV protection.  When you wear sunglasses with no UV protection you are doing more harm to your eyes than if you were to wear no sunglasses at all.  When you put the glasses on, your eyes will adjust to the darker tint.  This means your pupils dilate and let in even more {harmful} light.  So really you are destroying your eyes with those cheap and cheerful specs.  Yikes, right?
