Keep your eyes safe

If you’re not careful, the harmful UV rays can wreak havoc on on your eyes, even during the winter. Many people often don’t think the winter season would be harmful to their eyes, but the reality is with snow and the sun still shining, you still can get sunburn as well as eye damage.

Wear sunglasses while driving

If you wear sunglasses in the car while driving, it can make a big difference in your overall eye health. Plus, the sun can make the snow look brighter, which can at times make it harder to see. With sunglasses, you will be able to see things more clearly and overall be more safe.

Keep your eyes moisturized

Especially in drier climates where there is little to no moisture, using rewetting drops or something similar can help to keep your eyes from drying out. The cold temperatures can be harsh on your eyes and can dry them out as well.

If you are going to be outside for awhile, wear sunglasses

Are you going skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing or taking a leisurely winter hike? You will want to be sure to don some shades to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.

These tips are just a few of many you should implement during the winter to keep your eyes safe. How do you keep your eyes in great condition during the winter? We would love to hear your thoughts. Leave a comment below.
