Protecting Your Eyes From UV Rays

Every day—sunny or cloudy, Spring through Winter—you are exposed to damaging ultraviolet rays. Though you may not realize it, it’s there—UV radiation is invisible to the naked eye.

Watch a video about ultra violet rays:

Did you know…

  • UV light can “sunburn” the eye’s surface and cause benign yellowish growths on the human eye
  • Prolonged exposure to harmful UVA and UVB radiation over time can contribute to serious, age-related eye conditions or diseases
  • These diseases include cataracts and macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in people over age 60
  • Only lens materials or lens treatments that promise 100% protection against both UVA and UVB rays protect your eyes fully from the harmful rays of the sun. Demand 100% UV protection.

We want to thank everyone for their patience during this unusual time. We have now opened for our normal hours to serve all eye care needs. We do ask that you wear a mask when you enter our building. Unless you are a parent of a child or a caretaker, we are also asking you to leave friends and family at home or in the car unless they have business in the building as well. In an effort to keep physical distance guidelines, you may be asked to wait in your car for a phone call. Thanks again for your patience, and we look forward to serving you.
