Protecting your eyes from sun damage

Sunglasses are often seen as a fun summertime addition to your wardrobe. But sunglasses are more than just an accessory, they’re necessary if you wish to prevent sun damage to your eyes. In Utah, Sunglasses should be a year round accessory especially for winter sport enthusiasts. Though the sun may not shine as bright in the winter, the white snow reflects harmful rays directly into your eyes. Here are five reasons to protect your eyes from sun damage:

7

Cataracts

Cataracts
A cataract is a clouding of lens in the eye that affects vision and in many cases requires cataract surgery. Utah eye care specialists say that wearing sunglasses helps to slow down cataracts.
6

Skin Cancer

Skin Cancer
The skin around the eyes, including the eyelids, is one of the most prone to skin cancer. Wearing sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection is a good way to prevent skin cancer in this area.
5

Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration
Over time exposure to sunlight can cause damage to the macula latea which can lead to blurry vision and eventually vision loss. After a certain stage not even surgery can treat macular degeneration, so protect your eyes while you can!

Photokeratitis

Photokeratitis
Also referred to as ‘snow-blindness’ here in Utah, is a temporary but painful sunburn of the eye’s surface. It causes blurred vision, light sensitivity, and the sensation of sand in your eyes.

Dark Adaptation

Dark Adaptation
Spending even just 2 to 3 hours in the bright sun can hinder the eyes’ ability to adapt to nighttime or indoor light levels. This can make driving at night after a day in the sun or a day on the slopes very hazardous.
Utah Eye Centers
I am always so impressed with the staff at Utah Eye Center. Everyone is so friendly and supportive and encouraging even when a procedure is not the most enjoyable. I will certainly recommend this center to anyone who asks.
