The Sun and Your Eyes

Stylish Ray Ban Sunglasses featured at Metro Eye Care Toronto

Eyelids are designed to protect the eyes, the eyelid’s skin is thin and contains various fragile tissues vulnerable to UV light. Inside the eye, the lens and cornea, filter UV rays, but years of UV absorption can damage them. The lens can turn yellowish and cloudy. The cornea, the area in front at the outer layer of the eye, admits light and images to the retina. UV damage can cause many various eye conditions such as Eyelid cancers, Intraocular Melanoma, Conjunctival cancers, Cataracts, Macular degeneration, Keratitis, or Corneal sunburn. The best way to protect your eyes from these harmful rays is to wear ophthalmic grade sunglasses with full UVA and UVB protection.
