3 Tips to Protect Your Eyes from UV Damage

Ultraviolet rays from the sun can affect not only your skin but also your eyes. Too much exposure to UV rays can cause long-term damage to your eyes, especially during summer, amid the scorching heat.

Protect your eyes effectively by learning the basic types of UV rays and take steps to maintain normal and healthy eyesight.

 

Types of Damaging UV Rays

There are three categories of UV Rays: UVA, UVB, and UVC.

UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply, causing skin aging. These rays can also pass through your cornea into the retina, which can cause eye problems like cataracts and photokeratitis.

On the other hand, UVB rays cause sunburn and skin cancers. In relation to the eyes, these rays cause irritation and light sensitivity.

UVC rays are the most damaging. Prolonged and direct exposure to this light can cause cornea injury.
