Eye Protection From the Fall Sun

When the fall has come, it may seem as if the sun isn't as bright. With the temperatures getting colder and the sun shining for fewer hours a day, it can seem as if we don't need eye protection that we do in the summer. However, it is important to protect your eyes from the damaging effects of the sun year-round. Yearly eye exams allow our eye doctor to diagnose and address eye issues before vision problems are allowed to occur. At Vision City of Lake Worth, we have been providing residents of Lake Worth, TX with reliable eye care services for many years.

UV Rays and Your Eyes

The sun emits UV rays which can damage your eyesight. UV rays can cause several eye problems that can show up during your vision exam including cataracts. Sunglasses are needed for eye protection in the fall just as they are during the summer. Be sure to wear your sunglasses whenever spending time outside. Having prescription sunglasses makes it easier to switch from your eyeglasses when you go outside.

Glare and Eyesight

The glare from the sun can also cause many vision problems. Glare can make it harder to see anything in the sun, which is especially problematic while driving. Glare can cause you to squint and strain your eyes, and this can cause wrinkles as well as vision problems. Your sunglasses offer great vision protection no matter what you're doing in the sun. After each of your eye exams, talk to our optometrist about getting sunglasses as well as your normal glasses or contacts.
