Snow Blindness, also known as Photokeratitis or ultraviolet keratitis, is a temporary and painful result of ultraviolet exposure to the cornea of your eye. I thought I had it a couple years ago after a walk through Annex Park on a sunny wintery day – the sun was so bright and reflected off the fresh white snow. For about an hour or so I had this bright white blob that crawled from front and centre to the outside of my vision. If I had just worn sunglasses with UV protection, I would have never experienced that displeasure. Live and learn!
