UV Safety and Awareness
Keep an eye on UV safety!
When packing the sunscreen for your next barbeque, don't forget the sunglasses! Harmful UV rays can affect eye health at a later stage.
Summertime means more time spent outdoors, and studies show that exposure to bright sunlight may increase the risk of developing cataracts, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and growths on the eye such as pterygium.
The doctors of EyeCare Specialists would like to remind you of the importance of protecting your eyes, as well as your child's eyes, from the sun's harmful rays by wearing proper protection. Click here to learn more!
