UV protection eyewear
Wearing sunglasses with proper UV protection is just as important as wearing sunscreen when enjoying the sunshine.
To avoid the early development of eye disease, sunglasses should be worn to protect your eyes in all seasons. Sunlight reflected off sand, water, and snow can be extremely damaging, causing a condition called photokeratitis.
Prolonged exposure to UV can be damaging to your eyes. UV radiation from the sun can damage the eye’s surface tissues, cornea, and lens, increasing your risk for vision loss. However, wearing UV-blocking sunglasses will significantly lower your risk of permanent damage and vision loss.
Excess sun exposure can increase your risk of developing:
- Eye cancer
- Sunburned eyes
- Growths on or near the eye
Eyewear You Can Count On To Keep You Safe
Different types of sports and activities have different levels of risk. In the US, nearly 30,000 eye injuries treated in emergency rooms are sports-related. However, 90% of all serious eye injuries could be prevented by wearing appropriate protective eyewear.
Regular eyeglasses do not provide proper protection and can, in some cases, make an injury worse if they shatter. One study found that basketball was the leading cause of sports-related eye injuries in the US, followed by baseball, softball, airsoft rifles, pellet guns, racquetball, and hockey.
