UV radiation and Your eyes
Summer is here and we all remember to protect our skin from harmful UV radiation with sunblock-but what about our eyes? There are three types of UV radiation: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV –C is absorbed by the ozone layer and doesn’t cause us any harm. UV-A and UV-B can have both long term and short term effects on our vision and overall eye health.
Living in Florida means you are familiar to UV radiation and sunburns. Have you ever been so sunburnt you felt like your eyes were sunburnt? They probably were!
Photokeratitis is like a sunburn of the eye. Symptoms include redness, a gritty or sandy feeling in our eyes and possible sensitivity to light as well as an increase in tearing. Photokeratitis is usually temporary and usually artificial tears will alleviate this condition .
Dangers of UV radiation to eye health
Scientific research has shown that long term exposure to UV radiation can cause early cataracts and damage to the retina. It also increases your risk of developing macular degeneration later in life. Cataracts,retinal damage,and macular degeneration are very serious and often irreversible diseases of the eye!Valuvision recommends wearing a quality pair of sunglasses that blocks both UV-A and UV-B radiation as well as screening out 75-90 percent of visible light. Having a quality pair of eyeglasses is a absolute must for long term eye health! Polarized lenses offer the best protection against UV radiation and give the best optical clarity. There are also certain brands of contacts that filter out UV light. All of the Acuvue products made by Vistakon have UV protection in their contact lenses. It is equally important for children to protect their eyes. We are constantly reapplying sunblock but often forget about sunglasses. Children tend to spend more time outdoors then we do and should be wearing quality sunglasses made out of polycarbonate or impact resistant lenses.
