When we are young we think we are invincible, but that is not true, unfortunately.

Now, I make sure that I wear sunglasses regularly

The docotor said it had to do with his job as a lifeguard. Both of us have blue eyes. I wear transitional lenses these days to reduce risk.

When its cloudy many people think that the sun rays will not burn! Those powerful UV are always present during the daytime! Rain or shine. Winter or summer!

Thanks for your comments,

The direct rays of the sun make you warm, it is the ultraviolet radiation that hurts, and that goes thru the clouds. Since you don’t feel the light rays you are fooled and then can get a nasty burn. Use a strongsunblock UVA & UVB
