It’s National Sunglasses Day and I thought it was an appropriate time to discuss sun safety tips for protecting your eyes. Most of us remember to put sunscreen on to protect our skin, and then don’t give another thought to our eyes.
But prolonged exposure to the sun without protection can cause cataracts, macular degeneration and a number of other eye problems, including sunburn on the surface of the eye and skin cancer around the eyes. With about 3 million people going blind each year from prolonged UV exposure, it’s something we all should think about daily.
