UV radiation from the sun can damage not only your cornea, lens and retina, but also the delicate skin around your eyelids. Long term sun exposure can cause growths on the front of your eye (pterygia), cataracts and macular degeneration. Children are more sensitive to the damaging effects of UV radiation than adults. Start the habit of wearing routine sun protection at an early age!
