In the previous article, we discussed “Do sunglasses have to match your outfit?”. In this article, let’s talk about “Why do teenagers not tend to wear sunglasses?”.
There is a high rate of myopia among teenagers.
According to data from the National Health Commission, the overall myopia rate among Chinese children and adolescents was 53.6 percent in 2018, which means one in two Chinese children and adolescents are myopic. Patients with myopia need to consider the diopter when choosing sunglasses. Low or moderate myopia can wear ordinary, non-diopter sunglasses on the premise of not affecting safety, while patients with high myopia (above 600 degrees) need to wear diopter sunglasses safely. Color-changing glasses are popular because they automatically change color with the light in the environment changes, but not everyone is suitable for wearing them. It is not favorable for the corrected vision of highly myopic people above 600 degrees to wear color-changing glasses.
The school time is early morning and late afternoon.
Teenagers mainly study in school, and the time to go to and leave school is basically in the early morning and late afternoon when the sunlight is not too strong. Appropriate and moderate exposure to the sun can not only increase the adaptability of the skin but also prevent the skin from excessive sunburn and tanning in summer. Enhancing the skin's tolerance to sunlight is an important part of shaping healthy skin. The best time is the early morning and late afternoon, when the sun is not too strong, so sunglasses are not necessary during that time.
Commuting distances are usually not very long.
Teenagers' main job is to focus on study, and they do not pursue fashion and personality. If their personality is too conspicuous, it will be not consistent with traditional Chinese culture. At the same time, for the convenience of getting to and leaving school, the distance between school and their home is not usually too long, so teenagers do not tend to wear sunglasses.
Wear sunglasses for different occasions.
The basic principle of wearing sunglasses is to wear them outdoors, not indoors. It is proper whether you travel on the beach or lawn spring, mountain climbing, skiing, and so on; In addition, sunglasses are also suitable for driving. Sunglasses are not suitable for indoor wearing, and they are as well not suitable for wearing in a dark environment because they will affect the brightness and make your eyes tired. If you have an eye disease, you can wear sunglasses indoors. Light colors are recommended on the road or in public places other than formal occasions (for this season). It is best not to wear them at work or on other formal occasions. If you must wear them, you should wear relatively light shades, instead of fashion shades.
