    Default Saving Your Eyes in Snow Season

    Did you know that spending a day in the snow can be harder on your eyes than a day at the beach? As Lesley Alderman reports in this week’s Patient Money column(New York Post), snow reflects nearly 80 percent of the sun’s rays. That means more harmful ultraviolet rays are directed into your eyes.

    Winter or summer, hours of bright sunlight can burn the surface of the eye, causing a temporary but painful condition known as photokeratitis. Over time, unprotected exposure can contribute to cataracts, as well as cancer of the eyelids and the skin around the eyes.

    UV exposure also may increase the risk of macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in people over age 65. While cataracts can be removed surgically, there is no way to reverse damage to the macula, the area in the center of the retina.
    To protect your eyes, it is important to wear sunglasses that block out harmful UV light. Grab your summer shades out of the drawer, and learn more about how to protect your eyes against winter glare by clicking here
