Protection against UV light

Diana models her new prescription sunglasses which as well as giving her protection against the sun (and Dundee is one of the sunniest places in Britain- yes, really) protect her against UV light. UV light is linked with the development of cataracts and macular degeneration (AMD), the largest cause of blindness in the UK. You can protect your eyes against UV light by wearing sunhats and scarfs, and by having UV protection in the form of good quality sunglasses, either prescription or ordinary, or by UV protection incorporated into your lenses, which is automatically done with most high index (thinner) lenses or in the form of an anti-reflection coating combined with UV protection.
