If you have a longer exposure to the sunlight out sailing then the sun’s harmful Ultra Violet rays can certainly have a damaging effects on your eyesight. The longer your out on there water the higher the dangers. Not only are you out on the deck and being unsheltered in the sun but the glare off the oceans, not to mention the sailing deck, the sails and other boats, makes the exposure far higher intense.
Greg Rule, Managing Director of eyewear Rudy Project points out that: "Not using your sunglasses on the deck or simply forgetting them ashore or at home, is rather like going out on the water without sunscreen. A number of eye diseases have been linked to extreme sun exposure, Ultra Violet light and the super harsh glare including cataracts, macular degeneration, keratitis (snow blindness) and pterygium, as well as damage to the sensitive skin around the eyes, which includes wrinkles!"
