Protecting Your Eyes from the Bright Las Vegas Sun
Cataracts are common among senior individuals. However, you can take action to protect your eyes from this common problem. For instance, did you know that sunlight exposure could increase your risk of getting cataracts? With the frequent sunny days in the greater Las Vegas region, you may be putting yourself in danger on a regular basis if you do not take proper precautions to protect your eyes. First, invest in a quality pair of sunglasses that offer protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Each time you venture outside, put on your sunglasses. Second, for added protection from the sun’s damaging rays, wear a hat when possible. Because cataracts can develop for months or even years before you notice their effects on your eyesight, you may also want to consult a physician to test the quality of your vision.
