Keeping an Eye on Sunshine

Sunglasses are an important weapon in the fight against skin cancer and cataracts. Chronic exposure of the eyes to sunlight increases the risks of cataracts and skin cancers of the eyelid. Health experts estimate more than 10 percent of cataracts suffered by Americans are UV-related. Wearing sunglasses that block 99 percent or more of UV radiation can help reduce the risk. Sunglasses that wrap around the sides of your head offer better protection. Be sure you sunglasses block both UVA and UVB rays.
