Resolution 3: Wear sunglasses and UV safe contact lenses
It is important for everyone to protect your eyes from the sun whether you need glasses or not. At least 10% of cataract cases are caused by UV exposure. Those who play outdoor sports are at a higher risk of corneal sunburn from glare off surfaces such as water, snow, grass and road surfaces.
Low winter sun is just as damaging as summer sun so consider getting a pair of prescription sunglasses at your next appointment for driving on bright winter mornings.
Mackey Opticians stock a wide range of sunglasses suited to all purposes and can all be made up with your prescription.
Almost all UV related conditions can be identified during a routine eye exam so be sure to book an eye test this new year.
