Celebrate National Sunglasses Day

Celebrate National Sunglasses Day

Now that summer is here, protecting your eyes (while wearing your fabulous sun readers), is even more important. You know that I always talk about taking care of your vision with the proper eyewear! It is not enough to just look fabulous! You have to be healthy too!

Wearing sunglasses is so important that The Vision Council has worked with both local and national media to raise awareness of the importance of protecting your eyes. They recently created a special day called “National Sunglasses Day” with the goal of creating awareness of the importance of protecting your eyes in the sun. See below for an infographic that features some very important information about sun protection for your eyes.

Just as we have all been taught to protect our skin with sunblock during the summer, it’s equally as important to shield our eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Without taking the proper precautions, we open ourselves up to damaging our eyes in the long run. If you’re planning a day at the beach, or even just on your commute to work, sun protection is a wardrobe staple that will never go out of style.

Try our “bright as the sun” Pamela sun reader (with a barely visible bifocal) in a bold yellow tone, or our Hollywood inspired Elizabeth, in a rich tortoise.
