One of the biggest threats to your eyes is invisible germs, dust, and particles floating in the air. The scientific evidence has proved that long-term exposure to invisible ultraviolet radiation can certainly damage your eyes and finally lead to complete vision loss. And this can happen with anyone rather everyone including adults and children, we all are at risk.

Every year various renowned medical associations and centers remind Americans of the importance of protecting their eyes from the sun's harmful radiations by wearing a good pair of sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats.

Just like your skin, your eyes also never forget UV exposure. Studies have shown that over exposure to sun can increase the risk of developing cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Both of these causes lead to vision loss among older adults. Over UV exposure, wind, and dust can even cause pterygia, benign growths on the eye's surface. The increased exposure to bright sunlight and the greater the chance of developing these eye conditions.

In addition to the damage caused by a lifetime of exposure to bright sun, you are ought to protect your eyes from acute damage caused by single outings on very bright and sunny days. Extreme exposure to ultraviolet light reflected off sand, snow, or even pavement can damage the cornea of the eye and the eye's surface. Only one thing can protect you from all and that is sunglasses. Similar to sunburn on your skin, corneal ultraviolet injuries are painful, but they usually heal quickly.

Here's how to ensure your eyes are protected:

Select sunglasses that completely block ultraviolet rays. Please don't be deceived by color, design, style, or cost. The ability to block UV light is not dependent on the darkness of the lens, design, style, or the price tag.

Ideally, your chosen sunglasses should wrap all the way around to your temples. So the sun's rays can't enter from the side.

Moreover, along with your sunglasses, wear a broad-rimmed hat. They both protect your eyes and don't be fooled by a cloudy day. The sun's rays can pass through the haze and thin clouds.

Even if you wear contacts with UV protection, remember your sunglasses and do wear them.

It's especially vital to wear sunglasses in the early afternoon, when UV light is most intense, and in higher altitudes where UV light is more intense.
