Studies have shown that excessive exposure ultra-violet (UV) light can cause permanent damage to the eyes.  Cumulative damage from repeated exposure may contribute to the development of cataracts, macular degeneration and other unwanted growths in the eyes.

On the other hand, some sun exposure is critically important, as the skin uses UV to synthesize vitamin D which helps us maintain healthy bones, muscles and immune system.

To protect your eyes while you’re in the sun, we recommend that you wear a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses that absorb ultra-violet light up to 400nm (100% UV absorption).
