We’ve all heard the scary link between UV radiation and skin disease, but what about our eyes? Why are we recommended to wear those silly eye googles?
THE REASON: UV light can cause SERIOUS eye damage to the external and internal structures of the eye and eyelids. People who frequently tan without goggles are 75% more likely to develop photokeratitis (sunburned corneas), cataracts, macular degeneration and skin cancer.
