Is the Sun Hurting Your Eyes?

You’ve heard that overexposure to the sun is bad for your skin but did you know it also could increase your risk of developing serious eye conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration? Spending time outdoors, even when it’s cloudy, exposes your eyes to radiation damage that builds up over time. You only have one set of eyes, so protect them every time you’re outside by wearing sunglasses and contact lenses (if you wear them) that offer UV protection. Sunglass coverage should start at your brow bone and touch the top of your cheek. If you don’t want to leave anything to chance, get glasses that wrap around the temple area.
