Sunglasses Protect Eyes From Harmful Rays
Living in Florida, protecting your eyes from the sun and ultraviolet lights is important. Too much sun exposure can increase your likelihood of developing cataracts, other optical diseases (such as macular degeneration), and damaging the retina. Just as the sun can burn your skin, your eyes can also be sunburned. This condition is photokeratitis. Sunglasses can help reduce your exposure to these harmful rays.
