For years we have known the damaging effects of UV radiation on our skin, and most of us routinely slather on the sunscreen when we go outdoors. What about our eyes, though? Prevent Blindness has declared May as UV Awareness Month, and we are trying to get the word out that UV can be just as harmful to your ocular structures. Something as simple as putting on a pair of 100% UV blocking sunglasses will reduce your risk of conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and skin cancer around the eyes. Not a hard step to take to help ensure a lifetime of good vision. Let Family Eyecare Associates help you choose the right pair for you, and you can protect your eyes and look good while doing it!
