Your eyes are exposed to danger daily and you probably do not realize it. And all you are doing is going outdoors. Everyday, even in the winter, you are exposing your eyes to the rays from the sun. The sun's rays not only cause skin damage but they can damage the eyes and the surrounding skin. Overtime, this will increase your risk for vision loss from cataracts and macular degeneration. You will also increase your risk for cancers of the eyelid and in the eye.
UVA and UVB rays are some of the most dangerous forms of sunlight. They are considered to be a major cause of cataracts, eyelid cancers and certain other skin cancers. These rays in addition to high energy visible light including blue light are believed to play a part in macular degeneration.
Lenses that block and absorb UV are one of the best defenses against damage to your eyes and surrounding skin. These lenses can be prescription or non-prescription. Coppertone Polarized Prescription Sun Lenses can help protect your eyes and the sensitive skin around them for healthy sight. They block 100% of harmful UVA and UVB rays while providing more HEV/blue light protection than ordinary sun lenses. Say good bye to glare.
