Screen out the sun this summer

0

Think of summer, and most people think sunscreen, hats, and long-sleeved shirts. Remember to add sunglasses to that list. Ultraviolet, or UV, rays can cause significant damage to unprotected eyes, resulting in a number of illnesses and disorders that can rob people of their sight. 

The wrong sunglasses can do damage to your eyes. It is worth spending a bit extra to get glasses that provide proper protection. The sunglasses should be rated to absorb 99 to 100% of both UV-A and UV-B radiation. This is not always price-related, so check carefully before you part with your cash. And do try and get your kids to wear sunglasses as well.
