Wear your shades

Direct exposure to sunlight for prolonged periods, and that also on a regular basis, can prove to be very fatal -- and not just for your skin. While you apply sunscreen lotion and carry an umbrella, you also must not forget about our eyes.

Meanwhile, sunglasses are a fantastic fashion accessory. If that is not enough of an excuse, sunglasses can play an important role in keeping your eyes healthy. Your shades can protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, hence discouraging cataracts to form. UV light may contribute to damaging the macula lutea -- an area of the eye with numerous light-sensing cells, which allow for seeing minute details vividly -- perhaps eventually leading to blurriness and vision loss. Up to 10% of all skin cancers are found on the eyelids. 

And of course, they allow for easier vision under the blazing sun. So flaunt those sunglasses in style!
