Protect Your Eyes & Look Good Doing It
We all look forward to enjoying the sunshine when we have nice weather, but it is vital to remember that prolonged exposure to UV rays can be harmful! Overexposure to UV rays has been linked to several eye problems, including cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Protecting your eyes with 100% UV blocking sunglasses can help to prevent permanent damage.
Some other precautions to take when enjoying the sun are:
- Be aware of reflections
- UV rays can reflect off of surfaces, causing glare. Polarized sunglasses can help to reduce associated discomfort and protect the eyes
- Stay informed
- Regular eye exams can help to keep you up-to-date on the latest in UV protection
- Check the time
- Avoid direct sunlight between 10 AM and 4 PM, when the sun’s rays are the strongest
