Sunglasses May Be Just As Important As Eyeglasses
While sunglasses are an excellent accessory to your fashion line, but their most important job should always be to protect your eyes from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays that emit from the sun. Here is a short list of just some of the dangerous side effects that unprotected exposure of the eyes to the sun can bring about:
- The disease of cataracts—a clouding of the eye’s lens that can blur vision. An estimated 20% of cases are caused by extended UV exposure.
- Macular degeneration is possible, which is the number one cause of blindness in the country. This disease causes enough damage to the retina that it totally destroys your central vision system!
- Lesser known symptom called pterygium—a tissue growth over the white part of the surface of the eye that can alter the curve of the eyeball, causing astigmatism (this means that there is an imperfection in the eyes curvature).
