UV Safety Month

July is UV Safety Month! Studies show that long-term exposure to bright sunlight may increase the risk of cataracts and growths on the eye, including cancer. UV rays reflected off sand and water can cause eyes to sunburn, potentially resulting in temporary blindness in just a few hours. In support of UV Safety Month this July, the American Academy of Ophthalmology reminds the public of the importance of shielding eyes from the sun's harmful rays with 100% UV-blocking sunglasses and broad-brimmed hats.

All three of our locations offer a wide selection of sunglasses and our in-house optical lab provides a quick turn around for prescription lenses with UV protection and polarization. Stop by one of our offices today to browse our selection of eyewear or give us a call to schedule an appointment!
