Q&A with the Eye Doctor

Dr. Melissa McLaughlin Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Why is UV protection important for your eyes?

The eyes are particularly sensitive to UV radiation. Short duration exposure can lead to conditions called photokeratitis or conjunctivitis; more commonly known as “welder’s flash”, “snowblindess”, and “pink eye”. The symptoms of these conditions can vary from severe pain, blurred vision, gritty, foreign body sensation and light sensitivity. Extended exposure can lead to cataracts and macular degeneration, both of which can lead to blindness.

Children need even more eye protection than adults as they tend to spend more time outdoors than most adults. In fact, more than half of a person’s lifetime exposure to UV radiation occurs by age 18. Children are much more susceptible to retinal damage because their lens is much clearer than adults; thus, enabling UV rays to penetrate deeper into the eye.

You should always wear sunglasses even in the shade, because surrounding buildings, roadways and surfaces can reflect UV rays. Sunglasses are also very important in the winter! Fresh snow can reflect 80% of UV rays nearly doubling your overall exposure to UV radiation.

Do I need to wear sunglasses even in the winter months?

The sun can cause short term damage like a sunburnt eye (photokeratitis) or long-term damage such as cataract, age-related macular degeneration, or even cancer, but with dropping temperatures and increasing cloud cover, the last thing many people think about is reaching for their sunglasses. However, it is important to protect your eyes from UVA and UVB rays all year-round! The sun’s rays reflect off the snow which increases their intensity!Do you like to downhill ski or snowboard? UV radiation increase approximately 4% with every 300m of elevation gain and those rays are just as strong on cloudy days!

Don’t forget about the kids! A child’s eyes are even more sensitive to sun overexposure than an adult’s so make sure your little ones are sporting sunglasses when they are outside enjoying winter too!Make sure you look for quality sunglasses or goggles with 100% UVA and UVB stickers!
