UV Rays and Eye Damage

Last updated 6 years ago

Most people are aware of the consequences of exposing themselves to the sun without sunscreen or protective clothing—but have you ever considered how the sun’s UV rays affect the health of your eyes?

This video explores how UV rays can affect the health of your eyes and increase your risk for a number of eye conditions. Long-term exposure to the ultraviolet radiation can lead to cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Fortunately, eyeglass stores offer prescription eyeglasses and Transitions lenses to help protect your eyes while outdoors. Learn more in this video!

For more information on obtaining Transitions lenses, contacts, or scheduling an eye exam for prescription eyeglasses, give Wize Eyes in Long Island a call at (516) 358-0040.
