Eps 43 #Interview - Sunny Days in the Digital Age - Focus on Eye Health with @SarahnBernard

Our eyes are windows to the world, and we're not doing enough to protect them. Constant exposure to the sun 'and' screens is taking a toll on our eyes.

We don't think twice about grabbing sunscreen to protect our skin from harmful U-V rays that cause sunburn and skin cancer. But, most people don't realize our eyes can also suffer sunburn; causing both short and long term damage.

But the great outdoors isn't our only concern. On any given day for approximately 8.5 hours, our eyes are fixated on TVs, computer screens, iPads, e-books and smart phones. The Vision Council reports that blue light penetrates deep into the eye, which may result in:

- Long-term vision problems, such as macular degeneration, cataracts and damage to the retina
- Sleep disruption, due to the suppression of melatonin

PegCityLovely chats with Sarah Bernard, lifestyle and fashion contributor, about protecting our eyes as the days get longer and warmer!
