SERVEY QUESTIONNAIRE FOR SUNGLASSES The following questionnaire deals with how often you typically use or wear

sunglasses in a given situation.

Key Terms UVA (ultraviolet-A): long- wave solar rays of 320-400 nanometers (billionths of a meter). Although less likely than UVB to cause sunburn, UVA penetrates the skin more deeply, and is considered the chief culprit behind wrinkling, leathering, and other aspects of photo aging. The latest studies show that UVA not only increases UVB s cancer-causing effects, but may directly cause some skin cancers, including melanomas and directly effects your DNA. UVB (ultraviolet-B): short-wave solar rays of 290-320 nanometers. More potent than UVA in producing sunburn, these rays directly affect the outer layer of the skin and are also a significant cause of melanoma.
