Low vision refers to a visual impairment that can’t be corrected with conventional eyeglasses or contact lenses. It is characterized by vision loss that interferes with daily living activities like reading and cooking. It is commonly associated with several eye-related conditions like retinal detachment, macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma.
The skin around the eyes is the thinnest in the body, making it highly susceptible to developing various conditions. Too much sun exposure can greatly damage not only your skin, but also your eyes. With summer bringing stronger ultraviolet (UV) rays, you may be at a higher risk of developing short- and long-term eye damage.
