UV EYE PROTECTION STARTS EARLY
Sun protection is important for all of us. The effect of UV light on our eyes and the danger of damage from UV radiation grows the more time we spend in the sun throughout our lives. Children are even more vulnerable to retinal damage because their young eyes are clearer. Did you know most of a person's lifetime exposure to UV radiation can occur by age 20?** It’s essential to start wearing sun protection for your eyes early.
Look for a pair of sunglasses specifically designed for UV eye protection that are rated UV400 or higher; that means they’ll block 99.9% of UV rays. Lenses should also be polarized, to help neutralize harmful glare. And watch out for false UV labels – not all sunglasses are created equal.
