The Eyes and Sun Exposure

SunburnWatch that sun!  Sunglasses are not only for  summer.  Did you know that we get up to 80% of our lifetime sun exposure before 18 years of age?  Wow!  We all know about the use of sunscreen to lower the risk of skin cancer.  However, we often leave a delicate and vitally important organ exposed to sun damage—the eyes.  The eyes and eyelids are susceptible to cancer from sun exposure throughout the year, as well as a host of other conditions, such as cataracts.  VisionPro carries high-quality sunglasses with good UV-A & UV-B protection, such as Oakley and Ray-Ban. 

Don’t forget the kids!  For your kids, we recommend Transitions lenses, which darken outdoors.  These lenses block 100% of harmful UV rays from passing through.  These lenses are great for children since they do not have to remember to put on their sunglasses before going outdoors.
