Protecting your eyes from the sun

• Provide maximum protection from UV light
Long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light increases your
chance of cataracts. The greater the blockage of UV light, the
lower your risk of damage. Choose lenses that block 99 percent
to 100 percent of ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB)
light. Check the label.
• Reduce glare
Choose sunglasses that are dark enough to reduce glare —
light that bounces off smooth surfaces such as pavement,
water, sand and snow — but not so dark that it’s hard to read
traffic signals. Polarized lenses decrease glare, but make sure
they also provide maximum UV light protection.
• Fit close to your face
To minimize UV light that can enter from the sides, buy
wraparound sunglasses.
• Meet your needs
Sunglasses that meet the above criteria don’t need to be
expensive. If you wear glasses for vision problems, ask your
eye doctor about transition lenses that protect your eyes by
darkening automatically when you’re out in the sun. However,
it takes time for the lenses to darken and lighten in different
lighting conditions, so make sure these types of lenses meet
your needs.
