    Question:

    I have beginning macular degeneration. Is there a certain type of dark sunglasses I should wear to protect my eyes?


    Answer:

    There is no definitive scientific evidence that any particular type of sunglasses can protect against the development or progression of macular degeneration (a breakdown of tissues in the back of the eye). However, we do encourage the wearing of sunglasses with 100 percent UV absorption as well as wearing a broad-brimmed hat when outdoors.
