climate change, environmental factors, ocular disorders


Climate change has serious health effects on humans. However, not much is known about the specific effects on the ocular system (the eye) where an increase in air temperature, heat waves, ultraviolet radiation (UVR), humidity, particulate matter, unseasonal rainfalls, sea levels and drought, cause ocular disorders. Therefore, this paper is aimed at highlighting the connection between common eye disorders and environmental factors, analysing available literature and recommending protective strategies that could reduce the effects of climate change on the ocular system.
