Sunglasses at Night

Sunglasses at Night

Today is National Sunglasses Day so I wanted to be prepared. Sunglasses protect our delicate eyes from the sun's harmful rays but they also make a fashion statement.

Sunglasses at Night

I wear my sunglasses at night. These pink "cat eye" glasses are stylish at any hour, anywhere.

I wear them at the beach. I'm rockin' these red shades with extra UV protection.

Did you know that cats can get CATaracts? We get them from diseases, meds, trauma to the eyes, aging, or even toxins. Some cats are even born with them. Dogs can get cataracts from the sun so I suppose feral and outdoor cats can too. Cataract surgery in cats is very similar to human cataract surgery complete with a new lens implanted to take the place of the cloudy one. You only get one pair of eyes so protect them. We know that most cats can't really wear sunglasses but that's what photo editors are for.

We did know that cats can get cataracts, but we didn't know there was surgery for them. That's interesting!

You look very stylish in your sunglasses. My mum wears varifocals with reactolite lenses so she only takes them off to go to bed.

I'm glad fashionable CK is on top of things, because I otherwise wouldn't have known that today was National Sunglasses Day. And great info you have here on cataracts as well. We'd be lost without you, CK.

YOu are stylin' in your sunglasses. Thanks for the info about cataracts. The male person around these parts is dealing with them right now.

You look good in sun glasses CK. I don't trust any cat with wearing sunglasses at night. They must be up to no good. Kali tried wearing sunglasses at night but she couldn't see her paw in front of her face. Seeing she is accident prone at the best of times, she decided to only wear them during the day.

You look so cool and stunning in your sunglasses! Thank you for the info about cataract. We need to be aware of it and protect our eyes.

Hey CK, yes, mommy did have to have da laser pawrt done after her surgery, but her has an astigmatism and insurance didn't cover those lenses. Da doctor didn't even tell her 'bout it till they wheeled her in to surgery so she didn't have da oppurrtunity to say anythin' or try to get da money fur da lenses herself. Anyways, dat's why even tho' she had da surgery and da laser to clear them up, she still sees blur and not so good. But we's glad to hear TW and Pops did well with it.

Luv ya'
