Sun Damage and Your Vision: How to Offer Your Eyes the Best Protection

Last updated 5 years ago

Have you been spending a lot of time outdoors enjoying the summer heat? Even though cool fall breezes are beginning to roll in, you still need to ensure your eyes are fully protected. EJ’s Sunglasses distributes the latest in eyewear protection to guard against potential sun damage. Use the following tips to protect your eyesight from the sun’s harmful rays.

Wear Sunglasses

Direct exposure to sunlight gradually weakens your eyesight. Exposure to sunlight, even on a cloudy day, can increase your risks for a variety of ocular ailments, including cataracts and surface damage. Medical research from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency suggests that people with exposure to direct sunlight can develop small bumps in the white of the eye called pingueculas. The irritation caused by pinguecula growths can be avoided by regularly wearing sunglasses.

Pack a Hat on Vacation

When packing your sunglasses for an afternoon at the beach, add a baseball cap or sunhat to your items as well. Wide-brimmed hats help shield your eyes from additional sunlight and potential sun damage. While sunglasses are invaluable to protecting your eyes from the sun’s harsh rays, hats assist in your efforts to protect your skin and surrounding eye areas from harmful effects.

Invest in UVA and UVB Protection

It takes a quality pair of sunglasses to fully protect your eyes from sun damage. At EJ’s Sunglasses, we offer you top-of-the-line sunglasses equipped with UVA and UVB protection—the energy and wavelengths of these types of sunlight can cause severe damage to your eyesight without adequate protection.
