Braving the sun's rays without protection can cause serious eye damage. Dr. Don Perez, a local Ophthalmologist, showed ABC Action News a video by VueCare Media - showing how your eye may start to change if it's burned.
It takes about 7 months for a retina burn to get worse. You may start noticing blurry or distorted vision in the center of the eye. In severe cases, you can end up losing vision completely in the middle.
If that happens, it means you may have a macular hole or macular pucker.
"You would not want to live like that. That would be legally blind," said Dr. Perez.
He says if you are concerned you did damage, don't freak out. Go to an ophthalmologist and get your eyes checked. He says 90% of folks won't have permanent damage and symptoms will fade away in 7 months.
