Do Sunglasses Protect Your Eyes from Allergens?

Do sunglasses protect your eyes from allergens?


A: Sunglasses won't just make you look cool, they'll make you feel better too! That's because sunglasses help keep allergens out of your eyes, where they can trigger allergy symptoms. Both eyeglasses and sunglasses do the trick, and there are other types of clothing that also help: When working outside, consider wearing a face mask designed to filter allergens from the air. Also try wearing a long-sleeve shirt, gloves and a hat. The more you cover up, the less allergens will be able to get to you.
