DANGEROUS
RADIATION

What is ultraviolet radiation (UV)?

Ultraviolet radiation is high-energy shortwave radiation. This type of radiation is invisible to the human eye; however, it is perceptive to certain animals. UV radiation is a part of sunlight but can also be emitted from artificial sources (e.g. welding machines).EN/str 3 1 

UV radiation itself has both a positive and negative impact on our lives, plus it is connected with number of important chemical processes in the human body. However, excess exposure to ultraviolet radiation is harmful to the skin and eyes. Eyes serve as receptors of surrounding light and are a very delicate apparatus in their structure. Eyes are the first part of the entire human body to suffer from damages caused by UV radiation and significant degenerative changes occur as a result.

CLINICALLY PROVEN FACTS

It is clinically proven that long-term exposure of unshielded eyes to the sun’s radiation can damage the surface of the eye and its inner structures. Moreover, these negative effects accumulate with time. The longer your eyes are exposed to UV radiation throughout the course of life, the greater the risk of developing eye diseases is.

Our body has the ability to regenerate damaged cells. However, the eye lens is an exception – it is never possible for it to regenerate the natural way. For this reason, health consequences may eventually arise as a result of the gradual accumulation of damaged proteins in the eye lens.

DAMAGES CAUSED BY UV RADIATION ARE NOT NECESSARILY VISIBLE BUT THEY EXIST!

ILLUSIONS

We often succumb to the illusion that if we do not perceive damages (problems) as acute, then there is no problem. The pitfall of the effects of UV radiation is that they do not manifest themselves immediately but rather at a later age in life. Damages to the eye as a result of long-term exposure to UV radiation are irreversible and in the majority of cases, the moment symptoms show it is too late.

VISIBLE LIGHT

Visible light is a part of the light spectrum which the eye perceives. An excess amount of visible light irritates unshielded eyes and may lead to a decrease in visual perception.

INFRARED RADIATION (IR)

IR radiation has a longer wavelength than visible light and is perceived by man as heat. If you expose yourself to IR radiation for a longer period of time without protection, symptoms may occur such as burning or stinging eyes. Long-term exposure to IR radiation can lead to the formation of cataracts or even blindness.
