Keep your eyes safe!

The eyes are your windows to the world.

Unfortunately, many people never stop to consider the damages that overexposure to UV rays brings them.

Research has repeatedly shown, that the UV radiation from the sun increases the likelihood of having certain cataracts. Although they may be curable with modern eye surgery, cataracts diminish the eyesight of millions of Americans and cost billions of dollars in medical care each year.

You may be asking yourself, what are cataracts? If so, consider yourself to be lucky. Cataracts are a form of eye damage in which a loss of transparency in the lens of the eye, clouds the vision of a person. When left untreated, cataracts may lead to blindness.

Other kinds of eye damage include pterygium. Pterygium is when tissue growth begins to block your vision. Over 3 million Americans each year have to be treated for this. Skin cancer around the eyes and degeneration of the macula where the part of the retina’s visual perception is most acute is also a major problem that many people in the United States have to face each year.

All of these problems can decrease when you take certain precautions. Wearing proper eye protection is an imperative factor when combating against these health problems. Daily use of quality sunglasses can provide long-term protection for your eyes. Go and look for sunglasses, glasses or contact lenses that offer 99 to 100 percent UV protection. Sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of UV radiation will protect your eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration.

Many quality brands can help you protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. I use my Ray-Ban’s almost every day, and sometimes even when it’s cloudy outside. Your eyes are truly precious, so do your part and take care of them.
