A number of studies indicate that spending long hours in the sun without eye protection can cause damage to the skin of your eyelid, the cornea, the lens, and other parts of the eye. Over-exposure to UV rays also contributes to the development of cataracts and macular degeneration. Wearing the proper form of sun wear is crucial to the overall health and wellness of your eyes.
There are several important things to keep in mind when you are looking for a new pair of sunglasses. It is important to choose a pair that blocks 99-100% of UVA and UVB rays. Polarized lenses help to reduce glare that reflects off snow or water. Polarized lenses are particularly useful for driving, fishing, and skiing. If a person is particularly active, polycarbonate lenses offer impact protection.
