In a Himalayan trek, you venture out in the high altitude terrains exposing yourself to the high-intensity UV rays. The reflection of light from various shiny objects from the surrounding can be harmful to your eyes. This may cause a headache and some dizziness. These UV rays are very harmful to your eyes and prolonged exposure to the high-intensity UV rays damages it. The snow and glacier further intensify the UV rays and hence making it mandatory to use Trekking Goggles to keep away from Snow Blindness.
Trekking Goggles are used for trekking in very sunny/snow and high-altitude conditions. Sunglasses are polarized and provide UV protection. They protect eyes from intense high-altitude sunlight. Trekking Goggles help avoid snow blindness and provides a soothing effect to the eye while hiking in mountains.
Impact-resistant polycarbonate is used to create Trekking Goggles’ lens. So, your goggles won’t break if they fall to the ground. The lenses are designed to withstand impact.
To avoid snow-blindness or general high-altitude blindness, it is necessary to shield your eyes from the harmful UV rays. Trekking Goggles’ lenses are polarized and provide UV protection, thus avoiding snow blindness or high-altitude blindness.
Trekking Goggles’ frame is made to withstand the tough conditions that a trek may provide. Extreme sun, wind, rain or snow-storm, does no harm to the frame. It can withstand shocks. So, no need to worry if your trekking goggle falls down, the frame won’t break.
At high altitudes, UV rays bounce off the ground/snow and penetrate the eyes. Normal goggles are not designed to stop rays entering from sides. Trekking Goggles provides the ability to stop UV rays from reaching the eyes from sides, top & bottom.
Field of Vision
Trekking Goggle’s large-sized lenses provides superior peripheral vision. You don’t want to miss out on viewing those huge mountain views. Also, it helps having a large field of vision while passing through treacherous areas during your trek.
