It is something many deal with during their commutes, sun glare. And while that morning or evening sun can sometimes be hard to avoid, it isn't just an inconvenience, it's also dangerous. 

"Basically you're sun burning your eyes, you are going to have inflammation and redness," optician Shannon Callaghan said. 

In addition, temporary blindness is also possible, although most sun damage to your eyes occurs when you are young.
