1. Geographical Factors: UV radiation levels are generally higher in tropical regions near the equator. The closer you are to the equator, the more direct and intense the UV rays you receive.


2. Altitude Effects: Higher altitudes receive more intense UV radiation. In mountainous regions, the thinner atmosphere filters less UV radiation, increasing the risk of eye damage.


3. Reflective Surfaces: Locations with reflective surfaces, such as snow, water, or sand, significantly increase UV exposure. Snow, for instance, can reflect up to 80% of UV rays, posing a high risk to skiers and snowboarders.
