In “The Blog” for the Huffington Post (7/7), author Kim Dramer writes that “summer sun poses significant issues for eye health and vision.” To protect “vision during the summer months and beyond” from the harm caused by ultraviolet rays, including long-term problems, such as cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and even cancer, the American Optometric Association (AOA) provides guidelines recommending the use of sunglasses, wearing a hat, and using sunscreen on the skin around the eyes.

Don’t use pickup sunglasses you may find at the store because the UV protective claims may not fully protective and do more harm than good.  In addition, Andrea Thau, OD, “president-elect of the AOA and Associate Clinical Professor at State University of New York College of Optometry, provides an eye health primer for understanding the dangers posed by summer sun and protecting your eye health and vision as well as that of your child during summer vacation.”   Subscribe to our youtube channel so you can see the latest news at https://youtube.com/eyeweargallery
