Top 6 ways to keep The Sun (Solaris Intrusis) out of your eyes

1. Stay indoors. Seems obvious, right? But 87%* of all sun-in-the-eye incidents occur outside of the home.

2. Wear sunglasses. All the time. Indoors, outdoors, on a bus with Gus. You never know when the Sun will flash you. Kind of like Gus, actually.

3. Cover your head. The least effective method can also be the most stylish, especially in regards to wide-brimmed hats and hooded sweatshirts in summer.

4. Wear an eye patch. Studies show that an eye patch, when worn properly, can reduce sun/eye encounters by as much as 50%.

5. Join the Mole People. They claim to be the ultimate “underground” movement, but I found them to be smothering and too intolerant of other sources of light—case in point, this website.

6. Damn your eyes! Stop eating carrots. Sit too close to the TV. Shoot a BB gun willy-nilly. Basically, put your eyes at risk with every turn and the sun will be the least of your worries.

*Or 88%, depending on which made-up statistics you prefer
