Too Much Sunlight Can Be Bad for Your Eyes

You may already wear sunglasses when going out for a walk on a nice summer’s day, or visiting the beach to relax or hang out in the surf, but did you know that ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun can be just as harmful in the cold, winter months? In an article published in ModernMedicine, Arthur De Gennaro notes that the sun shines just as brightly during all months of the year. Also, sunlight can reflect off white snow and directly into your eyes, causing glare and reduced visibility. Wearing sunglasses can reduce the effects of glare and protect your eyes by absorbing UV rays. Keep this in mind when you are outside this winter season. We wish you and your family a happy holiday season. Have fun, be protected, and be eye-safe!
