Summer is coming and with it a high temperature, hazardous UV rays are already present. Once again, though, despite all the warnings, some advice is not taken seriously, UV rays cause sunburn, premature aging of the skin, in the case of deformation of the skin cells harder diseases

(melanoma, epitelijom, ...) and you can also time-consuming and dangerous damage to eyesight. Eyes are compared with the skin ten times more sensitive to dangerous UV rays argue in Eyecare Trust, and the message was published in the Daily Mail.

The greatest risk are children's eyes, which have a wider pupil and sensitive lens, so that the children 70% more UV rays penetrate the retina.

Sunscreens yeah, what about sunglasses? Nevertheless, research shows that even 93% of Britons do not realize the damage to the eyes caused by UV sunlight.

Experts sunglasses, whatever the time of year, recommending both children and adults. More cautious experts recommend wearing sunglasses even on a cloudy day. More exposed blond and blue-eyed people, because they have less pigment,

which means that more sensitive to the sun's UV rays. "Dangerous" sun face 'later in life causes many changes in the eye. The most serious and the most dangerous injuries macula, which is the most sensitive part of the eye, "

says Rob Lamont English ophthalmologist. Eyecare Trust Last year's survey showed that 79% of parents and children used sunscreen, while 44% never care to protect children's eyes . Eating leafy vegetables spinach,

cabbage and peas protects the eyes. The aforementioned vegetables contain lutein, which helps the vitreous humor of the eye in filtering the harmful UV light.

Light harder to reach the retina, so the role of natural lutein sunglasses. Maybe it sounds funny but still, sunglasses, since the beginning of 2009 a compulsory part of school uniforms Australian primary school.
