The Importance of Sunglasses

In our part of the world it is most important to wear sunglasses because many studies have shown that ultraviolet light from the sun can contribute to cataracts, macular degeneration, and skin changes in the eyelids, including cancer.  

Sunglasses should be worn in the summer, especially at the beach or in the water and in the winter when participating in outdoor sports like skiing at high altitudes. Additionally, some medications (some psoriasis drugs, tetracycline, allopurinol) increase sensitivity to ultraviolet light.

The main factor in purchasing sunglasses (in addition to the cosmetic and aesthetic aspects) is how much ultraviolet (UV) A and B rays are blocked. Even clear glasses absorb some UV light, but certain added treatments to glasses give even better blockage of the harmful rays. The higher the percentage of UV blocking the better (100% is ideal).
