When to protect your eyes from the sun

When the sun is dazzlingly bright, it's a reflex to reach for your sunnies, but don't forget to protect your eyes in the following situations as well:

- When skiing (the white of the snow reflects the sun's rays).

- When driving (a sudden glare of sunlight, in the rear-view mirror for example, can distract the driver).

- When it's cloudy but bright (to avoid squinting your eyes).

- In rare cases, when observing a solar eclipse. At this time it’s essential to wear special glasses that are completely opaque to normal light, in order to prevent ocular lesions which can be irreversible.

It's best to keep a good pair on you wherever you go, better safe than sorry as they say!
