The connection between rejection of sunglasses and blindness has been revealed. Ophthalmologist Kuskov: Rejection of protective glasses in sunny weather leads to blindness 11:29

Ultraviolet rays affect the cornea of ​​the eye and cause burns with intense radiation, the development of cataracts and benign neoplasms on the surface of the eye. Therefore, not wearing protective glasses in sunny weather can lead to the development of vision problems, including blindness, which is a complication of cataracts. “I see” Alexander Kuskov, an ophthalmologist at the eye microsurgery clinic, told

“Ultraviolet light is very important for our body because it helps the body synthesize vitamin D. But the same ultraviolet light is dangerous for the eyes, namely the cornea, retina and lens epithelium of the eyes, which absorb sunlight. not protected by glasses. Ultraviolet rays entering the cornea can cause burns and cause the formation of dystrophic areas and damage to retinal tissue. The damage caused by excessive ultraviolet radiation to the lens is the acceleration of clouding processes,” Kuskov said.

According to the doctor, symptoms of a corneal burn include increased lacrimation, photophobia, and blepharospasm (spasmodic contractions of the orbicularis oculi muscle). Cataract is manifested by a decrease in visual acuity; In the initial stages, the feeling of a curtain in front of the eyes and the flickering of “black dots” when shifting the gaze can also be disturbing.
