#5 Rock your Favorite Pair of Shades
Protecting your eyes is just as important as protecting your skin. Exposing your eyes directly to sunlight can damage your retina. Last year I moved to Florida, know as the sunshine state and all I can say is the sun does a body good. However, the sun didn’t treat my eyes so well because I didn’t wear shades as recommended. This caused me to have a detached retina and as a result I had to have emergency eye surgery.
This was no fun at all, and now I wear my sunglasses faithfully and even have a pair of transitional lens. According to the National Eye Institute the sun’s rays contain ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and it is this that causes damage to skin and eyes. The rays from the sun can damage different parts of the eye including the retina, the lens and the cornea.
Overall, this summer don’t let your guards down and be very conscious of what you eat, drink and how you protect your body. These tips you may be aware of but the reality is there are so many people who disregard the recommendation of experts. Be safe and be healthy!
