UV eye exposure

Hi, I went to a sunbed today.

I forgot to wear the goggles, (wont do that again)

My eyes were closed all the time, only opening them when i checked the control panel inside, about +/- 18sec non continuos.
I tanned for 10min. could this have caused any eye dammage? permanent/temporary? My eyes feel fine though.

Dear Johnnyb
It should not have a permanent effect if it was just for a few seconds but yes, please remember to protect your eyes as ultra violet radiation can cause cataracts.
