We know that the winter's shorter days can have an effect on our emotional health, but does the season's lack of light have an effect on our eye health
Spending more time in sunlight was shown in one study to reduce children's risk of nearsightedness! For every hour per week the children studied children spent outside in daylight, their chances of becoming nearsighted dropped by 2%.
Research suggests that light-sensitive cells in our eyes are crucial to regulating our wake-sleep cycles. A minimal daily exposure to UV light is important to making sure our sleep cycles remain healthy!
Shorter days doesn't mean less "potent" sunlight - when you do go outside to get a healthy dose of UV rays during the winter, make sure to have a good pair of sunglasses on hand to prevent overexposure!
