Health Benefits of Wearing Sunglasses Regularly

Many people think the only protection they need from ultraviolet (UV) rays is sunscreen on their skin, however, they overlook their eyes’ sensitivity and exposure. Overly exposing your eyes to UV rays can cause various health problems. Wearing sunglasses can help you look good while out in the sun and protect you from these health issues, including the following:


A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye. For people who have cataracts, seeing through cloudy lenses is a bit like looking through a frosty or fogged-up window. Clouded vision caused by cataracts can make it more difficult to read, drive a car — especially at night — or see the expression on a friend’s face. Most cataracts develop slowly and don’t disturb your eyesight early on. But with time, cataracts will eventually interfere with your vision. At first, stronger lighting and eyeglasses can help you deal with cataracts. But if impaired vision interferes with your usual activities, you might need cataract surgery. Fortunately, cataract surgery is generally a safe, effective procedure. Contact Us today for more information.


This condition is essentially sunburn for your eyes. It may develop after you endure several hours of intense UV exposure, and the effects include teary, painful eyes. By wearing sunglasses with UV protection, you can avoid developing photokeratitis in your eyes.

Jet Lag Effects

According to studies, you can greatly diminish the effects of jet lag by limiting your UV ray exposure during a long plane ride. Another benefit of wearing sunglasses to reduce your UV exposure while on a plane is ultimately tricking your biological clock into adjusting to a time difference quicker when you arrive at your destination.

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of severe vision loss in people over age 60. It occurs when the small central portion of the retina, known as the macula, deteriorates. The retina is the light-sensing nerve tissue at the back of the eye. Because the disease develops as a person ages, it is often referred to as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Although macular degeneration is almost never a totally blinding condition, it can be a source of significant visual disability.

There are two main types of age-related macular degeneration:

  • Dry form: characterized by the presence of yellow deposits, called drusen, in the macula.
  • Wet form: characterized by the growth of abnormal blood vessels from the choroid underneath the macula.

Most patients with macular degeneration have the dry form of the disease and will not lose central vision. However, the dry form of macular degeneration can lead to the wet form. Although only about 10% of people with macular degeneration develop the wet form, they make up the majority of those who experience serious vision loss from the disease.

It is very important for people with macular degeneration to monitor their eyesight carefully and see their eye doctor on a regular basis.
