As we all know, long-time exposure to sun will burn the skin. In fact, it also does harm to eyes. Recently, Heaven Burton Mail USA reported that short-term exposure to ultraviolet light will burn the eye while long-time exposure to UV may cause eyelid cancer, cataracts and macular degeneration disease. American eye specialist Dr Kearney suggests that eye protection from UV rays is of great importance, even in winter. Below are some UV protection tips that you need to pay attention to.
1. Buy a pair of Qualified Sunglasses
The kind of sunglasses whose frame edge fits the face can help the full UV protection. Experts said that even if some contact lenses have UV protection effect, you’d better still wear sunglasses if you need to go out.
2. Wear a Wide-brimmed Hat
A wide-brimmed hat can withstand half of the ultraviolet light and it can reach better effect if the hat is of dark color.
3. Avoid the Strongest UV Time
