These rays can pass through clouds and in the winter your eyes can get sunburned or snow blinded by the UV rays reflected by the snow. This highly charged energy of the UV spectrum can disturb the DNA in the body's cells causing mutations that can result in skin cancer. Similarly excessive long term exposure can lead to cataracts, macular degeneration and liaisons on the white of the eyes.

So rub that sunblock on your arms and get a good pair of sunglasses that provide both UVA and UVB protection. Your eyes will thank you.
