It's vital to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays that can cause sunburns and vision loss. Wearing sunglasses that prevent 100 percent of UV rays can prevent eye problems like cataracts.

"So many people right now think it's the fashion but it's the preventative behind the fashion. We want to make sure we are preventing cataracts and macular degeneration, things like that," said Melissa Zalewski with The Rib Mountain Eye Center.
