Choosing sunglasses: Is UV protection important?
When it comes to sunglasses, UV protection matters. Here's why.
Eye injury: Tips to protect vision
An eye injury can happen in the yard, kitchen or even at the playground. Understand how to avoid injuries and when to seek medical help.
Shopping for shades?
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can damage your eyes, not just your skin. Choose sunglasses that block 99% to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays. Opt for wraparound sunglasses or closefitting sunglasses with wide lenses that protect your eyes from every angle. Keep in mind that the color of the lenses and the degree of darkness the sunglasses provide have nothing to do with the sunglasses' ability to block UV rays.
Do your sunglasses get the job done?
Sunglasses are more than a fashion statement. When you're shopping for shades, skip sunglasses that don't offer details about ultraviolent (UV) radiation protection. Instead look for sunglasses that block at least 99% of both UVA and UVB rays.
