Our Consultants at the Eye and Face Clinic, Waterford would like to remind everyone the importance of using CE marked sunglasses.
The CE mark indicates that the sun glasses block Ultraviolet (UV) light. If a pair of sunglasses have no CE mark there is a risk that they provide no UV protection. When the eyes are in shade the pupils dilate behind the sunglasses resulting in an increase in UV exposure.
Ultraviolet light increases the risk of cataract, macular degeneration and ocular skin cancer.
Enjoy the great weather with the knowledge that your eyes are protected.
