Q&A with Dr. McLaughlin

Dr. McLaughlin Answers Your Eye Care Questions

What are UV rays?

Ultraviolet radiation (UV rays) is similar to visible light, but it does not enable us to see things like visible light does. Visible light is composed of the colors we see in a rainbow and UV light starts right after the violet end of the rainbow.

UV rays come from natural sources, mainly the sun, and artificial sources such as welding equipment, lasers, tanning beds and some lamps. There are 3 types of UV radiation: UVC are the highest energy UV rays and most harmful to the eyes and skin; fortunately, the ozone layer blocks most of these! UVB rays are lower energy and are partly filtered by the ozone, but the rays that reach the earth’s surface can in low doses create a suntan, but in larger doses cause sunburn, wrinkles and skin discoloration. UVA rays are closer to visible light and have the lowest energy of the UV rays. It can pass through the cornea and reach the lens and retina inside the eye; therefore, making this the most harmful of the UV rays to the eye.
