Women's Fashion Sunglasses

Protecting the eyes from the sun is important for a number of reasons. Long-term exposure to UV radiation can lead to cataracts, skin cancer on the eyelid area (the area most common for nonmelanoma skin cancers), and other eye disorders. You can get excessive exposure to UV radiation from daily activities and reflection off of snow, pavement, and other surfaces. This can burn the front surface of the eye, similar to a sunburn on the skin.

Wrap-around or wide ear piece sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats are the best protection for the eye area because they help block UV rays from entering the eyes from the sides and above.

The cumulative effects of spending long hours in the sun without adequate eye protection can increase the likelihood of developing the following eye disorders:

* Cataract: A clouding of the eye’s lens that can blur vision.
* Snow Blindness (Photokeratitis): A temporary but painful burn to the cornea caused by a day at the beach without sunglasses; reflections off of snow, water, or concrete; or exposure to artificial light sources such as tanning beds.
* Pterygium: An abnormal, but usually non-cancerous, growth in the corner of the eye. It can grow over the cornea, partially blocking vision, and may require surgery to be removed.
* Skin Cancer around the Eyelids: Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer to affect the eyelids. In most cases, lesions occur on the lower lid, but they can occur anywhere on the eyelids, in the corners of the eye, under the eyebrows, and on adjacent areas of the face.
