The Importance of UV Protection


Like most Floridian’s we enjoy activities in the Sun! Our Sunny Florida provides us with the privilege of going to our wonderful theme parks, playing sports, going to the beach, having a picnic at the park, and much more! We are exposed to UV radiation more than we realize. Just like many people put on sun block, sunglasses are a must! UV protection is needed not just for the eyes but also on the skin around the eyes.

UV radiation is the cause of so many eye diseases and complications such as: Cataracts, Macular Degeneration, Cancer etc. In order to protect those precious eyes, you must wear sunglasses with 90-100% UV protection. Polarized sunglasses provide the darkest tint and reduce glare, which makes it easier to see through water and enhance your vision while in the sun and driving.
