Sea Specs: protect your eyes in the water

seaspecs.jpg

Lately, a lot of attention has been given to how damaging a waterman/waterwoman's outdoor lifestyle can be to the eyes over time. In addition to a greater risk of skin cancer, surfers of all types run the risk of developing pterygiums and cataracts due to sun exposure. And while wearing sunglasses is the best defense, this is often hard to do when engaged in water sports.

Many companies have surged to fill the void, creating sunglasses which are meant to be worn in the water. One company Sea Specs, offers pretty good value for price. At just $59.00, Sea Specs seem to win out over more expensive brands in recent reviews in both the New York Times and About.com.

With so much at stake, it only makes sense that protection both in and out of the water is a necessity. With 100% UVA and UVB protection and polarized lenses, a little investment now can mean not having to pay the price for sun exposure later on.
