True or false? Did Emperor Nero wear shades?
Answer: True, in a sense
Legend has it that the Roman emperor Nero watched gladiator fights wearing "lenses" made from polished gems. We've come so far since then, with lots of spectacular spectacle improvements along the way, and now Peepers Sunglasses are reinventing the spectacle once again.
Why wear sunglasses anyway? Our friend Nero wore them to soften the glare when he was attending his favorite outdoor sport, and we enjoy that benefit too; however the most important reason to don those shades is the eye-protection they provide. The sun emits three types of ultraviolet radiation: UVA, UVB, and UVC. These rays are not seen or felt by us, but they are there nonetheless.
UVC rays are completely absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere. UVB rays are partially absorbed. The rest of the UVB rays and ALL the UVA rays pass right through the atmosphere, reaching the Earth's surface, where they can reflect off surfaces like water, sand, snow and even buildings.
Sunglasses continue to be THE most effective took for preventing the immediate and the long-term damage these rays can cause. The right pair of sunglasses will block UVA and UVB light.
ALL Peepers Sunglasses offer this UV protection.
That's the science; now the fashion. Peepers Sunglasses come in the bright, fun colors and styles of this summer season, and are an easy way to reflect your individual personality. And at $22, why not pick up several pairs of Peepers to match all your favorite fashions?
