When you're choosing sunglasses, does UV protection matter?

Ultraviolet protection is not just important when it comes to your skin, but for your eyes as well! When purchasing sunglasses, make sure you choose a pair with UV protection lenses. The darkness of the lens does not necessarily mean it will protect your eyes from harsh UV rays. Glasses should be clearly marked as blocking 99 to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB rays.
