Wow! It is bright out there. You know you need to protect your skin with a good sunscreen, but what about your eyes? The sun beaming down on you as you pound the pavement or paddle the lake can take its toll on your eyes, just like your skin. But according to OMagazine, when 10,000 American were polled on wearing sunglasses 27% reported NEVER wearing that all important eye protection. Wearing sunglasses has these long term health benefits too:
- Reducing the risk of skin cancer. Ten percent of all skin cancers are found on the eyelid.
- Cataracts – 900,000 people worldwide are blind from cataracts triggered by UV rays.
- Macular Degeneration – Over time, this condition may cause vision blurring and vision loss.
- Pterygium – Also known as “surfers eye”, is an inflammation of the sclera (the white part) of the eye and can cause blurry vision and light sensitivity.
- Photokeratitis – Yep, that’s right, a sunburn on your eyes. It is painful and relief will come in about 48 hours.
- Wearing sunglasses reduces crows feet and wrinkles around the eye.
- You will have less eye strain and are more protected from debris in the air.
Every man, woman, and CHILD needs to wear sunglasses and know their eyes will thank them for it. People with blue eyes are more susceptible to sun damage to the eyes without protection. In a survey given, when asked why the survey takers chose not to wear sunglasses, these were some of the replies:
- Simply forget to grab them from the table or counter.
- 14% answered they lose them or break them and do not want to replace them.
- 20% replied they don’t think sunglasses are necessary
