No, UV or Ultra-Violet Rays are not large colorful members of the fish family, but they can do damage to your eyes. Ultra-Violet light, which means “beyond blue”, can cause or contribute to a variety of eye ailments, such as snow blindness, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and tumors. So before you go out in the noonday sun make sure you have a pair of safety glasses with UV lenses and you'll have it made in the shade. Manufacturers like UVEX manufacture industrial UVEX safety glasses that provide UV protection, comfort, and style.
