Tips for a Healthy Tan > General Tanning Questions > Is it really that important to always wear eyewear?

Yes! When proper eyewear is not used during the tanning process, the potential for eye injury is greatly increased. Our eyes don't have the capacity to produce melanin for protection like our skin does. UV light can be irreparably damaging to your eyes. Without the right eye protection, you are taking the chance of developing loss of color perception, poor night vision, macular degeneration, cataracts and permanent eye growths like pinguecula or pterygium. Some eye injuries and disorders include Photokeratitis (Cornea Sunburn), Cataracts, Pterygium (Abnormal tissue growth) and Damage To The Cornea.
