The UV light can be harmful to the eye, especially for prolonged periods, or as an accumulation over years of exposure

It is important to note that we are exposed to natural UV light when outdoors, even on cloudy days, and also artificial UV light when using sunbeds

Sunglasses are a fashion accessory and with a wide range of shapes, colours and materials available, every face has a pair

If you shop for sunglasses at your local optician you can get your prescription glazed into the lenses
