Understanding the UV Threat and why wearing UV400 is vital
Eyes are just as susceptible to the damaging effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation as your skin.

UV Rays could damage your cornea, lens and retina.
Most consumers know how to protect their skin against harmful UV-radiation, but awareness of the need for and value of UV protection of eyes is lower.
Small amounts of UV rays are essential for the production of Vitamin D in people, yet overexposure may result in acute and chronic health effects on the skin, eye and immune system.
