Prevent Snow Blindness
Wearing sunglasses is just as important in winter as much as in summer because snow reflects up to 80 percent of the sun’s rays, which is far greater than the reflection by other surfaces like water, sand or cement. The reflection of sunlight causes an intense glare, which can make it difficult to see clearly and could even burn the outer layers of the exposed eyes.
Skiing locations are typically located at higher elevations in the mountains where there is air between you and the sun to filter out harmful UV rays. So, the risk of UV exposure and the need for wearing sunglasses are considerably higher in high altitudes!
Reflected UV rays can cause snow blindness
UV rays reflected off the ice can lead to snow blindness, which is similar to sunburn on the cornea of the eye, which can cause irritation, dryness and discomfort. The damage caused by snow blindness is often permanent and can increase the risk of cataract later in life.
