Suns out. Shades on.
Prescription and non-prescription sunglasses, far from being just a fashion statement or finishing touch accessory, are a necessary tool for the health of your eyes. Sunglasses should really be worn year-round to protect your eyes from UV rays and eye strain from excessive light, and to avoid the complications that can arise from these issues.
Did you know? Your Eyes Can Get Sunburned, Too!
Just like the rest of your skin, your eyes are equally susceptible to sunburn. While getting sunburned skin is never a good thing and comes with its own host of problems, getting a sunburn on your eyes (also called photokeratitis) can lead to days of intense pain and blurred vision. This severe sun exposure can also lead to blindness-causing eye diseases.
