Most people are aware that it is important to protect your eyes from the sun. Especially since, growing up there was a good chance we’re told not to look at the sun. And there is a high likelihood that you own a pair or two of sunglasses and that you wear them frequently, but the decision to wear them during the summer months is vital.

How you protect your eyes throughout your life helps to determine how healthy your eyes will be as you age. So, it is especially important to start early with children protecting their eyes.

Warm weather lends itself to us being outside more than in the cooler months, which means there’s more exposure to sunlight. The harmful UV rays of the sun can burn your eyes and could lead to cataracts, which is the clouding of the eye.

The best tips to combat the suns rays are hats and sunglasses designed to block UV rays. If able, polarized lenses are an even better option.
