For eyes, many studies have shown that increased exposure to ultraviolet rays actually increases possibility of developing certain types of cataracts. While cataracts can be removed surgically, they can present as a serious problem. However, overexposure can cause other eye problems such as pterygium, which is tissue growth on white part of eye, and macula degeneration, which is damage to retina.
Therefore, above anything, always wear protective eye gear. Remember that not all tanning salons enforce wearing of goggles so ultimately, you have responsibility to protect your eyes. If you notice goggles not fitting correctly, ask for another pair until you find one that does. Many people who tan on a regular basis will buy their own goggles, ensuring their eyes have best possible protection.
Finally, if at any time you see a tanning salon advertising that their beds do not produce glare so goggles are not needed, you should run away as fast as you can. This is a false claim that is highly irresponsible on side of tanning salon owners. This is serious business and you only have one set of eyes so do everything you can to protect them for life.
