The Importance of Wearing Sunglasses

Sunglasses look cool but they also serve an important purpose – protecting your eyes from dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays. Our Shreveport optometrist, Dr. Sam Silverblatt wants you to know how wearing sunglasses can preserve your vision.

Protecting Your Eyes from UV Rays with Sunglasses

Sunlight contains many different types of light rays, including ultraviolet radiation. UV radiation can damage the skin on your eyelid and other parts of your eye, including the transparent cornea that covers the front of your eye and the lens that focuses light entering your eye.

Exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun increases your risk for developing cataracts, growths on your eye, and possibly age-related macular degeneration.

Sunglasses can reduce this damage by filtering out UV rays before they reach your eyes. For best results, look for sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of UV light and screen out 75 to 90 percent of visible light. Lenses should be perfectly matched in color and be free of any warping, imperfections or distortions.
