Slathering on sunscreen saves skin, but failing to protect your precious peepers could leave you with lingering vision problems. Harmful UV rays can injure corneas, cause growths on your eyes, and contribute to issues like macular degeneration and cataracts. Stay eye-wise in the sun when you:
- Slip on UV-blocking sunglasses—even when it’s cloudy out.
- Don a wide-brimmed hat for additional shade.
- Stay inside during peak UV hours—typically 10am to 2pm.
