When it comes to proper eye-care, a great pair of sunglasses can go a long way in protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. However, for those with less than perfect vision, maintaining a proper balance between contact lenses, glasses, and sunglasses can be a bit challenging. Contact lenses may work great with sunglasses, but do not fair well in all conditions, nor are they always the most comfortable to wear.
As you age, you will probably develop cataracts, but how can you prevent them? While cataracts manifest for a variety of reasons, the symptoms are a result of protein deposits on the lens of the eye that distort incoming light. This alters vision in a variety of ways including blurriness, double vision, color change, or progressive nearsightedness.
Causes and Risk Factors
Smoking, ultraviolet radiation, hormone treatment, or physical damage to the eye are the primary external risk factors for cataracts.
