The invisible ultraviolet rays can harm the sensitive organs of eyes. In high altitude regions, snow slopes, cloudy days and in pools , the risk of UV rays becomes high as these surfaces reflect more rays.UVB and UVA rays can be prevented from causing damage to the eyes by using appropriate sunglasses. It is interesting to note that though eyes occupy less than 2 per cent of the whole body surface area, it is the only organ that allows the penetration of visible light into the human body.
Extended exposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause cataract, macular degeneration, cancer and even temporary vision loss among others. An extreme form of UV damage is snow blindness, which is quite common among skiers and climbers who endure very high UV levels due to high altitude conditions and very strong ground reflection as snow can reflect up to 80 per cent of UV radiation.
