How often do you wear your shades? If you tend to put them away on cloudy days, you’re leaving your eyes susceptible to damaging rays.  Sunglasses protect your delicate eyes from the damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun.   These rays are present year-round, even on cloudy days and during the dead of winter.  Too much exposure to UV light can damage the surface tissues, corneas and lenses of your eyes.   It also raises your risk of eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration.
