Wear Sunglasses to Protect your Eyes from UV
Sunglasses protect your eyes from ultraviolet light. Sun exposure can damage your eyes and raise your risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Wearing the right sunglasses is also a great defense against ultraviolet (UV) rays that can cause short- and long-term eye damage, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Protect your eyes by using sunglasses that block out 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation.
You take precautions to protect their skin against UV rays. Do you protect your eyes against UV damage? Research indicates that long-term, unprotected exposure to the sunlight can lead to age-related conditions such as macular degeneration, cataracts and other eye conditions that damage healthy sight. Skin around the eyes, including the lids, is one of the most prone to skin cancer.
Wohl Optics recommends patients to protect their eyes against UV exposure at all times. UV light can go right through clouds; it doesn't matter if the sky is overcast.
Glare and reflections can give you trouble too, so have your sunglasses ready if you'll be around snow, water or sand, or if you'll be driving (windshields are a big glare source). Sunglasses are absolutely essential for people exposed to Ultraviolet (UV) light during activities like snowsports, watersports and driving in bright weather. Sunlamps, tanning beds, photosensitizing drugs, high altitudes and proximity to the equator also put you at greater risk.
