Believe it or not:
- Your eyes can become sunburned. Like your skin, eyes are an organ.
- Even on days when you do not see the sun, your eyes are exposed.
- Your overall exposure to damaging ultraviolet radiation (UV) nearly doubles during the winter. (Fresh snow reflects 80% of UV radiation compared to 15% from a sandy beach or 25% from sea foam.)
The takeaway here is that whatever the season, make sure to cover up those peeps.
By the way, the most common as well as inexpensive measure you can take to avoid hearing your optometrist and/or ophthalmologist utter the word “photokeratitis” is to wear sunglasses. Preferably ones that block the top end of the UV spectrum. (Look for ones with a sticker that states 400UV and UVB or 100% UV protection.)
Don’t know what style to pick? No worries. We can assure you that you “rock” in any pair of sunglasses! However, you would look exceptionally good in a pair with a sticker that states 400UV and UVB or 100% UV protection and really, really great wearing those sunglasses to the membership meeting that is being held, Monday, June 19th at 6:00 P.M.
Wow! Protecting your eyes and going to a meeting. Think of the example you would be setting!!!
Now, if you still need assistance in this matter, …….. the larger frame glasses (with a sticker that states 400UV and UVB or 100% UV protection) are “in” right now. So if you get a pair of those you can protect your eyes, more of your face AND be in style.
