Sunglasses: My BFFs

My shades have been my REAL bestie!! I take her EVERYWHERE and even wear her on semi-cloudy days! She protects my delicate eye skin and prevents wrinkles from forming – she never lets me down 😉

5 Reasons YOU too should make sun glasses your BFF:

Skin Cancer. Up to 10 percent of all skin cancers are found on the eyelid.

Cataracts. The World Health Organization reports that, worldwide, approximately 900,000 people are blind because of cataracts—cloudiness in the lens of the eye—triggered by UV exposure.

Macular Degeneration. Over time UV light may play a role in damaging the macula lutea (an area of the eye with millions of light-sensing cells, which allow us to see fine details clearly), potentially leading to blurriness and vision loss.

Pterygium. This abnormal growth of tissue—also called surfer’s eye—may progress slowly from either corner across the white part of the eye, possibly leading to inflammation or disturbance of vision.

Photokeratitis. Essentially a sunburn of the eye, it’s temporary (healing within 48 hours) but can be painful, causing blurred vision, light sensitivity, and the sensation of having sand in your eye.
