Even though our eyes are equipped with their own defence system, this alone is not enough to protect them from harmful UV rays. Reflexes like squinting and pupil dilation are only triggered by the sun’s visible light, meaning on cloudy days the amount of UV light reaching your unguarded eye can be dangerous.
