Protecting the eyes from ultraviolet rays is just as important as putting sunscreen before
heading out. UV rays can damage the eyes in a very serious level, as it may lead to cataracts,
glaucoma, and other eye conditions.
The most common way to protect your eyes from the UV rays of the sun is by wearing sunglasses. These are able to block some UV rays that may cause damage to your eyes and help protect them from harmful effects.
And if you think a wide-brimmed hat or a snow cap is enough to block out these harmful rays, think again: snow, water, dry sand, and sea foam are all able to reflect the sun’s UV rays back up into your face, making sunglasses necessary for protecting your eyes.
