Finding Your Perfect Prescription Sunglasses At Dr. Bruce Coward & Associates Serving Belleville, ON and Surround Areas

There are numerous reasons to wear sunglasses, from fashion to UV protection. Of course, the most important reason is to keep your eyes safe. The rays from the sun can give you sunburns, but they can also badly damage the eyes. UV-A and UV-B radiation both have long- and short-term negative effects on the eyes. One of the common results of high exposure over a short time is photokeratitis. Essentially, this is a sunburn of the eyes. It's extremely painful and may make you sensitive to light and will cause the eyes to feel as if there is a foreign body on them. Excessive tearing is normal with this condition, too. In addition to photokeratitis, you could develop macular degeneration or cataracts later in life. There are many reasons why you should always protect your eyes when you're exposed to the sun. Find your perfect sunglasses at Dr. Bruce Coward & Associates and let us help you protect your eyes.
