Photokeratitis

Photokeratitis

Photokeratitis or ultraviolet keratitis is a painful eye condition caused by exposure of insufficiently protected eyes to the ultraviolet rays from either natural or artificial sources. Photokeratitis is akin to a sunburn of the cornea and conjunctiva, and is not usually noticed until several hours after exposure. Symptoms include increased tears and a feeling of pain, likened to having sand in the eyes.
The injury may be prevented by wearing eye protection that blocks most of the ultraviolet radiation, such as welding goggles with the proper filters, a welder's helmet, sunglasses rated for sufficient UV protection, or appropriate snow goggles. The condition is usually managed by removal from the source of ultraviolet radiation, covering the corneas, and administration of pain...

Spring Skin Care Tips: How to Keep Your Skin Healthy and Younger-Looking

Lips are susceptible to sunburn since they lack melanin, the pigment that helps shield skin from the sun. Apply a layer of a sun-protective product daily for the best protection against sunburn. Licking your lips damages the protective barrier, which can dry out the lips.

What Every Person Needs To Know About Eye Care

Be sure to wear your sunglasses outdoors to protect your eyeballs from the rays of the sun. Keep ones that have really good UV safety features with you at all times. Sun damages both the eyes and the skin surrounding the eyes. What you eat is very important to the health of your eyes. Many vegetables like carrots and broccoli are rich in vitamin A. Fish and nuts can provide you with the omega-3 that you need. There are a lot of different aspects behind “getting healthy” and they all have a direct relation to the health of your eyes. Eating healthy will provide your eyes and the skin around your eyes with the vitamins they need.

It can also be stuck on a watch, or even a pair of sunglasses.The sensor will then send that data...
