Long range ultraviolet A (UVA) and short-range ultraviolet B (UVB) rays are the most dangerous forms of light produced by the sun. It is the same light that causes sunburn. Over time, exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays without proper protection can contribute to long term problems which include:
- Skin Cancer
- Macular Degeneration
- Photokeratitis or Snow Blindness
So protect your eyes with a pair of UV sunglasses if you are planning to be in the sun for extended periods of time.
