Ultraviolet radiation

It is known for its phototoxicity and is capable of causing harmful and irreversible damage to the eyes and skin in a short period of time. The ozone layer only filters a part of these radiations, the rest - in particular UVB and UVA - reach the cornea, where they cause inflammation of the anterior segment (uveitis, conjunctivitis, keratitis), pinguecula, pterygium, peeling of endothelium. UVA radiation also reaches the crystalline lens where it can cause opacities, which can cause cataracts.
