Always Use Sunglasses

Macular degeneration and cataracts are basically caused due to too much exposure of your eyes to harmful UV rays. While choosing a pair of shades, pick those that block 99% to 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Polarised lenses minimize glare while driving and wraparound lenses help protect your eyes from the side.
