Light exposure, specifically blue light, bright sunlight, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation, has been implicated in photochemical oxidative damage and light-induced apoptosis of the RPE cells [5, 8]. Clinical studies have had difficulty quantifying light exposures. Some suggest that the use of hats and sunglasses from an early age may be slightly protective, but others show no statistically significant effect and no definite conclusion on the protective effect of modern filtering lenses can be made [12, 13].
