UVA damage to the skin is a cumulative process, long-term UVA irradiation gradually led to the above lesions. Recently, the earth's ozone layer to reduce the rate of 1% per year, while the ozone layer thinning of each of the 1%, the ground UV intensity will increase by 1%-2%, some studies have concluded that the incidence of human skin cancer will increase by 3%.

Strong ultraviolet radiation can damage the eye tissue, leading to conjunctivitis, damage to the cornea, lens, UV is the main cause of cataract. In the middle of the summer at noon, observe the sun exposure of a page of white paper for a few minutes, you can achieve the degree of harm to the eyes, to prevent the eyes from ultraviolet radiation is an effective means to prevent cataract.
