How much "sunglasses" are necessary for the eyes?     

      Sunglasses are considered an essential accessory for many people, and for some who dislike wearing them, it may be due to discomfort or concerns about being judged. However, wearing sunglasses is not just about enhancing beauty or following fashion trends; it also has health benefits for the eyes. Today, we have four reasons why you should wear "sunscreen glasses."

  • Thailand's intense sunlight : Under the intense heat of the Thai sun, it is accompanied by strong winds, dust, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which can be harmful to the skin and eyes.
  • Protection against cataracts, glaucoma, and pterygium : Prolonged exposure to intense sunlight can have an impact on eye health. It can lead to symptoms such as dry eyes, eye discomfort, eye irritation, and even eye diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and pterygium.
  • Prevent premature aging around the eyes : The skin around the eyes is delicate and sensitive to light. Its structure consists of water molecules, proteins, collagen, and various substances that are easily damaged when exposed to sunlight.
  • Prevent photokeratitis : Excessive exposure to UVA and UVB radiation can cause sudden inflammation of the cornea, resulting in eye pain, tearing, and even abnormalities in other eye organs.

       Although there are various styles and price ranges of sunglasses available today, besides being fashionable and trendy, choosing sunglasses should consider their true purpose. They should aim to protect the wearer's eyes from UV rays and minimize the damage caused by sunlight.
