Sunglasses are more than just a fashion accessory. Numerous scientific studies indicate that spending more hours in the sun, without protecting the eyes, favors the development of cataracts and the destruction of ocular nerve tissues. These conditions lead, in time, to partial or total loss of vision.
Ophthalmologists recommend that on sunny days we wear glasses that absorb 99% of the ultraviolet radiation. In addition, we can protect ourselves with a wide-brimmed hat. For example, only 15 minutes of sun exposure is sufficient at midday to choose a burn on the unprotected skin. Unlike visible light, UV rays (UVA and UVB) can cause irreversible damage to the structure of the eyes. The most common are cataracts (the disease characterized by crystalline opacity) and macular degeneration (destruction of ocular nerve tissues). For this reason, doctors recommend glasses that block 99 percent of ultraviolet. Their protective power can be checked by an optician.
