    The Importance of Protecting Your Eyes from Ultraviolet Radiation

    Last updated 5 months ago

    You probably already know that your skin is vulnerable to the effects of ultraviolet radiation from the sun’s rays. Unfortunately, your eyes are just as susceptible to developing problems from sunlight. You’re more likely to develop cataracts or macular degeneration, as you grow older because of excessive sunlight exposure. For example, over time, the UV radiation can damage the retina of your eyes.

    Ultraviolet radiation can even cause short-term problems. If you’re exposed to excessive amounts of sunlight in a short period of time, you could develop photokeratitis. This condition is often described as, a sunburn on the eyes. It can cause symptoms such as light sensitivity, red eyes, and tearing. You may also feel as though there is a foreign body in your eyes or as if they are very gritty. Protect your eyes by choosing large sunglasses with UV protection and wear a wide-brimmed hat while outdoors.

    Another way you can protect your eyes is by scheduling checkups with an eye care specialist to detect problems such as cataracts as early as possible. If you do suffer from cataracts or a similar problem, explore your surgical eye care treatment options at Newsom Eye. To protect your NEWsom Eyes call our eye surgery center at (813) 448-1420.

    LASIK surgery is well-known for dramatically improving vision. However, some patients may not be good candidates for LASIK due to very severe vision impairments.

He chose Newsom Eye because of the approachability of the staff and the length to which the doctor went to explain his options in-depth.
