Everyone knows the importance of wearing sunscreen to protect your skin from damaging UV rays. It is equally as important to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes. Extended exposure to the suns UV rays has been linked to eye damage including cataracts, macular degeneration and photokeratitis, which can cause temporary vision loss.
Although you don't have to spend a lot of money on sunglasses, not all pairs are created equally. Be sure to find lenses that block at least 99% of UV ray and they should be worn year round, even on cloudy days.
