Ordinary lenses, despite the fact that they protect your eyes from the blinding light, does not necessarily offer 100% UV protection. In this case, the pupil expands, letting more light into the eye, and thus more harmful UV rays. Under certain conditions, the radiation may be even more dangerous: in summer, when the UV index is higher, between 11:00-15:00 or at specific locations where the UV reflection may increase.
