Summertime symbolizes: cookouts, pools, vacation, watermelon, pina coladas, sandy toes, relaxation and staying out late thanks to "what's" new bedtime?
It's all about that sunshine! Longer hours and later nights. How sweet.
But also... how BRUTAL.
The American Optometric Association and the National Eye Institute warn us of how harmful UV rays and "blue light" from the sun can be: leading to migraines/headaches, cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration (vision impairment caused by retinal deterioration) and even skin cancer, if not protected.
"The skin around your eyes and eyelids is very sensitive to sunlight. Nearly 10% of skin cancers are found near the eyes."Yikes! So what do we do to combat the sun?
