Sunglasses are a great fashion accessory, but we mustn't forget that their most important job is to protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays. Without taking these precautions, the sun can cause the following effects to the eyes:

  • Cataracts. An estimated 20% of cases are caused by extended UV exposure.
  • Macular degeneration, resulting from damage to the retina that destroys central vision. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the USA. 
  • Pterygium, a tissue growth over the white part of the surface of the eye that can alter the curve of the eyeball, causing astigmatism. 

When purchasing sunglasses, look for ones that block 100% of both UVA and UVB radiation, so you can keep your vision sharp and eyes healthy. For more information on your eye health, contact Dr. Christopher Stephen on enquiries@eyelashlogic.com.
