Protect those peepers

Even though the sun is 93 million miles away, ultraviolet (UV) rays can and do cause serious damage to your eyes. These invisible rays can burn your cornea and retina. That's why you always want to wear sunglasses when you go out during the day. Failing to protect yourself from UV light could lead to painful conditions like photokeratitis, also known as "sunburn of the eye."

UV exposure is also linked to cataracts and macular degeneration, which are responsible for vision loss in 50 percent of adults over age 80.

Wearing sunglasses is about more than just looking cool and eliminating the sun's glare.

When the sun's rays reach a person's eyes, they have the potential to cause damage, especially if the person is staring directly at the sun. UV light has not been proven to damage the cornea or lens of an eye as it does skin but studies show that UV light may impact a person's retina. When exposed to UV light occurs over a period of time, it can cause cataracts and macular degeneration, both of which can lead to blindness.

No one enjoys dealing with eye pain and blurred vision after looking into the sun for too long. Sunglasses are able to block 100% of UVA and UVB rays because they're produced with special lenses designed for this sole purpose. The tinted lenses in sunglasses block out more visible light than regular eyewear lenses so that less light reaches your eyes and you'll be able to stop squinting, even when you're looking directly at the sun.

Eyes are especially susceptible to UV light as they have no natural protection against it.

Eyes are especially susceptible to UV light as they have no natural protection against it. The cornea and lens of the eye do not block UV rays. UVA, which makes up 95 percent of the UV light that reaches the earth's surface, is linked to cataracts, macular degeneration, and growths on the eye's surface. And because the eyes are a direct route to your brain, it's even more important to protect them from infection-causing bacteria from water and other sources.

Both children and adults need protection from the sun's damaging rays. It is important for parents to protect their children's eyes by making sure their sunglasses offer 100% UVA/UVB protection with lenses that block out 75-90% of visible light. Eye care providers may also advise additional protection for kids depending on their activities or if they're at risk for certain conditions such as retinoblastoma (cancer in the eye).

Long-term exposure to UV rays can cause eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration.

The average person spends eighty-two days each year outdoors, with another thirty-three days spent in direct sunlight. In other words, they spend a minimum of sixty-one percent of their time exposed to UV rays. On its own, this wouldn't be a problem—after all, our skin and eyes evolved to handle such exposure well—but it can actually lead to serious eye problems. One form of cataract that is particularly common in the United States is age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which often affects people after the age of sixty. AMD causes loss of central vision and may eventually cause blindness if not treated or prevented. While there are many ways you can help protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, wearing sunglasses is one of them.

Sunglasses are essential for protecting your eyes on holiday as we tend to spend a lot more time in the sun than usual.

Whether you're on a city break in Europe or a remote beach holiday in Thailand, it's important to protect your eyes. Sunglasses are essential for protecting your eyes on holiday as we tend to spend a lot more time in the sun than usual. Even if the sun is not out and the sky is cloudy, harmful UV rays can still damage your eyes.

Sunglasses should cover your eyes, not just the immediate area around them. However, it's not just about blocking sunlight from entering your eye; sunglasses also reduce glare from sunshine reflecting off of surfaces like water and sand as this can cause discomfort and even damage to your vision.
