WEAR sun­glasses at all times, even if your eyes feel fine, as some of the ef­fects of too much light can be delayed.

Pro­longed sun ex­po­sure has been di­rectly linked to cataract for­ma­tion and ptery­gium (a pink­ish, tri­an­gu­lar tis­sue growth on the cornea of the eye) and are seen more com­monly on peo­ple who spend a lot of time out­doors and in hot cli­mates.
