Many people do not pay close attention to protecting their eyes from the harmful rays of the mid-day sun and this has given rise to an entire younger generation that wears glasses because their eyes have become weak as a result of neglect. Sadly, most people are unaware of how dangerous the rays of the sun are and will spend hours of every day exposing themselves and their eyes to these rays. It is a very surprising and shocking fact that even young children as young as five years old are wearing glasses today because their parents did not take the right precautions with their eyes when they were sent out to play or to play sports.
If you or your young child is engaging in mid-day sports which expose you or them to the harmful mid-day sun, it is important that you search online for sports eyewear which will protect the eyes from the dangerous rays. Wearing glasses is something that used to be for elderly people as their eyes begin to become weaker with age but today you will notice that about fifty to sixty percent of society is wearing eye glasses which are a very alarming thought. The reason for this is both the exposure to the harmful rays of the sun and the constant computer use of the younger generation which goes in to hours and hours.
If your child goes to school on their bicycle, you may want to get them a pair of reliable bicycling sunglasses to protect their eyes during the daily journey to school and the journey back home. Being exposed to the sun every day for this period of time can cause severe damage to the eyes.
Become aware of the dangers
The sad reality is that most people are completely unaware of the dangers that can occur due to constant exposure to the sun and due to constant use of the computer without protection to the eyes. It is vital for you to take some time to read up online about the consequences of exposure to the sun and use this knowledge to create awareness among your friends, your family and most of all, in your child’s school where so many children are risking their eye sight every day due to lack of knowledge. One thing you could do is to speak to the head of your child’s school about giving a small seminar or lecture to all students about this to keep them aware and alert of the dangers.
