ALL Tifosi Optics sunglasses have 100% protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. 

o Skin Cancer – because the skin around the eyes is sensitive, they need extra protection from the sun’s rays.
o Macular Degeneration – when a part of the retina begins to deteriorate and affect vision. UV radiation can speed up the degenerative process.
o Pterygium – a growth on the eyeball also known as “surfer’s eye”. Can cause pain and irritation in the eye.
o Cataracts – causing clouding on the eye’s lens. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can contribute to cataracts.
o Glaucoma – exposure to UV rays with Glaucoma can worsen the symptoms or create further complications.
