Wear protective eyewear, including sunglasses

It is important to note that wearing the appropriate protective eyewear is a must when doing a certain activity like when in an outdoor activity, working in the garage, or doing a science experiment because protective eyewear protects you from risk of chemicals or other materials like wood shavings or dust. Sunglasses, on the other hand, protects your eyes from the sun which can lead to serious risks when exposed too much.
