Sun Protection

Protecting your eyes from the sun is the same as protecting your skin.


UV Rays can cause serious eye damage and can be linked to multiple different eye problems/diseases. The best way to protect and prevent further damage to your eyes from the harmful UV Rays is with a pair of UV Protection Sunglasses.

Ways to Protect your Eyes from the Sun's UV Light.


- Don't stare directly at the sun; beware of the sun's reflection from the snow, water, sand and pavement.

- Wear 100% UV Blocking Sunglasses

- Children are at a higher risk: try to get them to wear hats and sunglasses; if infants use a canopy or umbrella to shade them from direct sunlight exposure.

- Cataracts

- Age-Related Macular Dengeneration

- Age Spots

- Corneal Sunburn
