Why wear sunglasses?

Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.
Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight has been associated with the development of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Quality sunglasses protect your eyes by blocking 100 percent of the sun's harmful UV rays. Sunglasses also protect the delicate skin around the eyes from UV rays that cause wrinkles and premature aging.

What are your biggest concerns with LASIK and any advice for those thinking about getting LASIK? We recently did LASIK on a patient who waited over 6 years because she was fearful of the procedure. She is happy with her deicison to finally have it and wishes she had it done earlier in her life.
