Are you protecting your eyes from the sun?
In recent years sunglasses have become a necessity rather than a luxury. Too much exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause sunburn and skin cancer. But did you know UV also can harm your eyes?
Extended exposure to the sun’s UV rays has been linked to significant eye problems, including cataracts and macular degeneration.
To protect your eyes from harmful solar radiation, you should wear sunglasses that block 100 percent UV whenever you are outdoors in daylight. Your eyes need protection even on cloudy days because the sun’s damaging UV rays can penetrate cloud cover.
