    Ocular Kryptonite: Sun Safety for Your Eyes
    Most people are aware of the harm UV radiation can do to the skin, but many may not realize that exposure to UV radiation can harm the eyes or that other components of solar radiation can also affect vision.

    Extended exposure to the sun's UV rays has been linked to eye damage, including cataracts, macular degeneration, pterygium, and photokeratitis... all of which can cause temporary vision loss.

    Host of The Wizard of Eyes, Dr. Robert Abel, discusses the dangers of UV and what you can do to protect your eyes.
