From now until August 31, when a patient buys a pair of regular glasses, we’ll give you 40% off on an order of prescription sunglasses, or 20% off on non-prescription sunglasses.
We are doing this because we cannot express strongly enough the damage the sun can do to your eyes. You see what the sun does to your skin, and your eyes are FAR more delicate.
Our Super Summer Savings will be great for your wallet and your eyes against the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays that can cause painful keratitis, cataracts, macular degeneration, and yes, even cancers of the eyelids or eyes.
Most of us understand the importance of sunscreen in the prevention of skin cancer, but many of us in Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake do not think about protecting our eyes from UV damage.
Our eye doctors have provided some easy ways to do that:
1. Wear a quality pair of sunglasses when outdoors.
2. Wear a brimmed hat, with your sunglasses, when outdoors.
3. Avoid sun exposure when it is the most intense — from 11am – 2pm.
Quality sunglasses are those with lenses that block 100% UV-A and UV-B rays. They also are designed to wrap slightly around your face to help block sun from entering in through the sides and top of the frame. A hat will help to cover areas that are not fully protected by your sunglasses.
Many people think that it is only important to wear sunglasses in the summer, maybe because that’s when the sun seems most intense. However, according to our eye doctors, sun in the winter can be just as damaging!
Our eye clinic and staff encourage you to get yourself and your family into the habit of wearing sunglasses regularly, all year long. You will reduce your risk of developing painful keratitis, cataracts, macular degeneration, and cancers of the eyelids or eyes.
