When you're spending time in the sun, ensure that your eyes are fully protected. UV rays can cause damage to eyes, so sunglasses are a vital part of eye care. Located in Richboro, PA, EYECARE for You will help you find the best way to keep your eyes safe when while you're enjoying the outdoors!
UV rays can cause significant damage to your eyes, especially when you're outdoors for long stretches of time. Not only can UV rays damage your vision, but they can modify lens proteins, putting you at increased risk for cataracts. Extended exposure to UV rays can also put you at increased risk for other forms of eye disease, including macular degeneration.
While it's uncommon for people to wear sunglasses in the winter, your eyes actually need UV protection year-round. UV rays can reflect off ice and snow, causing a temporary form of vision loss known as photokeratitis. Your eye doctor can help you find the best way to keep your eyes protected throughout the year.
Ideally, you should look for protective eyewear that offers 100% UV protection. Ideally, the lenses should be large enough to cover your entire eyes and should be made from an impact-resistant material like polycarbonate. If you're not sure how much protection your lenses provide, ask your eye doctor to evaluate them with a UV light meter.
While some contact lenses offer UV protection, it's still best to wear sunglasses when you're engaging in outdoor activities. If you normally wear eyeglasses, talk to your optometrist about prescription eyewear. We can provide you with prescription sunglasses that protect your eyes and correct your vision!
UV rays pose a threat to your eyes, but protective eyewear can provide you with essential protection.
