Protecting Your Eyes

Summer is here!  As you and your family spend time outside in the sun, make sure to keep your eyes safe.   While the sun’s warmth is a welcome change, the strong rays of light it emits can be very dangerous.  Direct eye exposure to UV light without proper protection can cause cataracts, premature aging or wrinkling to the sensitive areas surrounding the eye.  Excessive UV exposure can also lead to macular degeneration which is the leading cause of blindness in the world!  The best way to have fun in the sun while also protecting your eyes is to wear high quality sunglasses that block out harmful UV Rays. 

The National Eye Institute recommends wearing sunglasses that block out 100% of both UVA and UVB radiation, so you can keep your vision sharp and your eyes healthy.  To learn more about sun damage and symptoms, check out the “Eye Care” tab at the top of our website or schedule a comprehensive eye exam at one of our optical stores.  You can also stop by either of our locations to browse our stylish, 100% UV sun wear, as we constantly add new styles to our collections.

Whether at the beach or in your car, you should always have a fashionable pair of shades that reflect your personal style!  Sunglasses are the perfect accessory and most importantly protect your vision.  To schedule a routine eye exam or browse our new lines and products, call or stop by one of our two locations in either Cranberry or Fox Chapel!
