A day to create awareness and share the importance of wearing UV protective sunglasses to preserve your eye health and vision.

Today we are sharing some of the benefits of wearing sunglasses (besides looking and feeling like a movie star)

  • Sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays, which can be dangerous even on cloudy days.

  • They can protect you against skin cancer, cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

  • They help you see better.

  • Sunglasses keep your eyes safe from elements such as sand, wind, dust, and snow.

  • They can help you heal and recover better after having an eye procedure such as LASIK, PKR, and cataract surgery.

It is up to you to pick the color, shape, or style of your sunglasses. Just make sure they have 100% UVA and UVB Protection.

Ophthalmologists can detect the presence of cataracts by taking a medical history and performing a comprehensive eye exam that includes an acuity test, a slit-lamp exam, and a retinal exam.

In the earliest stages of cataracts, a person may not notice changes in their visions or other symptoms. That is why annual exams are so important.

Note: Cataracts are more common than you might think. More than 24.4 million Americans over the age of 40 have been affected by cataracts. By the age of 80, more than half of Americans have experienced cataracts.

This month, we are hoping to create more awareness and educate people about one of the leading causes of vision loss in the world.

A cataract is a clouding or loss of clarity of the natural lens of the eye. Cataracts do not cause pain but can reduce the quality of vision. Cataracts can occur with age, trauma, use of certain medications, extensive sun exposure, and various other causes.

If you have any questions or want to get a checkup, please contact us and we will be happy to help you.
