We shield our skin from powerful sun rays by applying SPF, but what about our eyes? UV exposure is just as harmful to our eyes as it is to our skin! Sun damage to our eyes can occur anytime during the year. Everyone is at risk, including children.

Unprotected eyes from sun exposure can cause a variety of eye problems such as:

  • Cancer of the eye, eyelid, or nearby skin
  • Cataracts(clouding of the lens of the eye, triggered by UV exposure)
  • Macular Degeneration(over time UV light may play a role in damaging the nerve cell in the macula causing significant visual disability)
  • Pterygium "Surfer's eye"(caused by sunlight, abnormal growth of tissue on the eye's surface which causes itchy, swollen, irritated eyes)
  • Photokeratitis(sunburn of the eye)

There is a solution, however- SUNGLASSES! This simple and stylish accessory is a great way to protect your eyes from the long term effects of sun damage.
