Protection from UV rays is a must. We all take care in putting sun block on face and body, but somehow fail to take the correct precautions when it comes to our eyes. UV is an invisible form of radiation and the damage to eyes builds up over time. There are 3 different types of UV radiation:
UVA: The least harmful of the three and most penetrative. Over exposure to UVA can cause certain types of cataract and have been linked with macular degeneration.
UVB: This is the most damaging type of UV for the eye. Exposure to UVB causes sunburn and over exposure to the eye can cause pingueculae, pterygia and snow blindness.
UVC: This is the strongest form of UV and fortunately the atmosphere’s ozone layer blocks virtually all UVC rays.
But this also means depletion of the ozone layer potentially could allow high-energy UVC rays to reach the earth’s surface and cause serious UV-related health problems
All Sunglasses will provide 100% UV protection and most clear glasses and certain Contact lenses will to a degree give protection.
