Wearing sunglasses can be more important than you think!
The sun is actually shining for me today, I hope it is for you as well!
Today is National Sunglasses Day which aims highlight the importance of wearing sunglasses. RNIB share their tips on how to protect your eyes from the sun after research has shown that people who do not wear sunglasses risk doing substantial damage to their eyes due to the harmful effects of the sun’s rays.
For most people, sunglasses are reserved for bright and sunny days. However, if you are sensitive to the light you may wear them more often. I have become incredibly sensitive to light as a result of loosing most of my sight over the last few years. As a result, I rarely would leave the house without wearing sunglasses and can wear them in the house on a particular bad day.
Why not share a picture of your sunglasses? How do you find your eyes manage on a sunny day? Let us know your thoughts below!
