    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Did the sun damage my eyes?
    scarface94 posted:
    I was sitting in my car which has no tinted windows whatsoever, and the sun was directly in front of me but I was looking down at my phone the entire time to avoid looking directly at the sun, but I could still feel it hitting my face. I never looked directly at the sun. I feel no pain, there's no difference in vision, and I don't have red eyes. I have OCD and I need to know please.

    Also, my car is too old to have a UV protected wind shield so take that into account.[br>[br>
    Thank you.

    The windshield in a car is a glass laminate and absorbs a lot of the UV.

    No harm done.
