Health Tip: Wear Sunglasses With UV Protection

(HealthDay News) -- Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can damage your eyes, says Mayo Clinic.

Sunglasses can help protect your eyes from UV-related problems, such as cataracts and macular degeneration.

Mayo Clinic recommends looking for sunglasses that:

  • Block 99 percent to 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays.

  • Screen out 75 percent to 90 percent of visible light.

  • Have lenses that are perfectly matched in color.

  • Do not have distortions or imperfections in the lenses.
