Health Tip: Choosing Sunglasses
(HealthDay News) -- Sunglasses are more than just fashionable, they also reduce the risk of sun damage to your eyes.
The Texas Department of Insurance suggests these features for your next pair of sunglasses:
Make sure the sunglasses cover both eyes entirely.
Look for sunglasses that block at least 99 percent of both UV-A and UV-B rays.
If you need safety glasses and sun protection while at work, seek a pair of safety sunglasses.
Always wear your sunglasses while outside.
