Health Tip: Wear Sunglasses With UV Protection
(HealthDay News) -- Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can damage your eyes, says Mayo Clinic.
Sunglasses can help protect your eyes from UV-related problems, such as cataracts and macular degeneration.
Mayo Clinic recommends looking for sunglasses that:
- Block 99 percent to 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays.
- Screen out 75 percent to 90 percent of visible light.
- Have lenses that are perfectly matched in color.
- Do not have distortions or imperfections in the lenses.
