I can't believe that it is already summer. Where has almost half of 2015 gone already?
As summer approaches and we are outside more often, please keep in mind that it is important to protect your eyes from the sun's damaging UV radiation. Scientific studies have shown that long term exposure to UV radiation can cause growths in the eye, eye cancer, macular degeneration, and cataracts.
When outside this summer please keep all of this in mind and wear sunglasses that provide adequate protection to your eyes. In our practice we have started using Blutech lenses which give your eyes UV and blue light protection. I believe that this is the best available sun protection that we can give to our patients. These lenses give natural depth and color perception, and improve contrast while reducing glare.
As summer approaches I hope that all of our patients enjoy all of the upcoming good times. Most importantly I hope everyone has a safe summer.
