Protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays
Summer is here and the importance of ultraviolet (UV) protection, especially for our eyes, cannot be overstated. UV-A penetrates easily through the skin. Although it is not as strong as UV-B, it is more prevalent and poses more of a risk to the inner layers of the skin and eyes. UV-B affects the outer layer of our skin and can result in sunburns, blistering, and possibly skin cancer. The front parts of the eye, including the cornea and conjunctiva, are the most affected by UV light. (Courtesy graphic)
