1. UV Protection
The sun’s harmful UV rays can lead to serious and in some cases long-term health issues.
2. Skin Cancer
5% to 10% of skin cancer occurs around the eyes. Always wear quality, protective sunglasses when outdoors—even on overcast days.
3. General Eye Comfort
The sun’s brightness and glare interferes with comfortable vision
4. Dark Adaptation
Spending even a relatively short time in intense sunlight can hamper the eyes’ ability to adapt quickly to nighttime or indoor light levels.
5. Blue-Light Protection
(HEV: high-energy visible radiation)
Use outdoor lenses that absorb the HEV, as accumulated exposure has been associated with AMD (age-related macular degeneration).
