The terrifying Chilean miner saga is thankfully coming to a close today. To aid in the miners’ rescue, Oakley donated special $450 sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection. The men will wear the glasses as they come up to the surface, to fight against any damage to their retinas which have not been exposed to sunlight in more than two months.
In preparation for the operation, the miners have been undergoing an exercise regimen meant to prevent muscle cramping. Upon their return they will be checked for infections and given medication to fight against germs that they are now vulnerable to.
We wish them a safe and speedy rescue!
