UV-induced ocular surface disease affects millions of people globally!
Acute sun exposure has been shown to cause sunburns to the surface of the eyes (skiers and children who spend a day by the pool without sunglasses often get this). This condition is called “Photoconjunctivitis/Photokeratitis”).
Prolonged sun exposure has been shown to cause chronic hyperemia (redness), chronic dry eyes, permanent discoloration of the Conjunctiva (“Michael Jordan Eyes”), and Pterygium Formation (“Surfer Eyes”).
Up to 10% of the world’s population (and an alarming 33% in certain regions) have been shown to suffer from Pterygium Formation, and multiple studies have suggested that it can be completely prevented simply by protecting the eyes from the Sun.
UVista SPF Eye Drops offer ongoing protection against UVB and UVAII rays with a few simple drops while outside in bright daylight, making them an essential ocular health product for just about everyone who spends a considerable amount of time in the Sun.
