Avoid getting a “sunburn of the eye.”
When sunlight shines off water, sand or other highly reflective surfaces into your eyes, it can cause a very painful condition called photokeratitis. This is when the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays burn the surface of your eye. Pain, redness, blurriness and even temporary vision loss are symptoms of this condition. Prevent photokeratitis by wearing sunglasses that are marked “100% UV protection.” Also, wear a broad-rimmed hat for added eye protection.
Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
