Summer's a sun-sational time but remember sun safety comes first

Provided By:

(NC)-With summer's sun-filled weather on the horizon, it's only natural to get excited about the warm air and outside fun that comes along with it. Family and friends are planning outdoor activities and vacations, like hitting the beach to spend time by the water, road-trips to the cottage and picnic get-togethers. However, under the hot summer sun, it's important to take precautions to protect yourself from the harmful effects of extended UV exposure.

When spending summertime outdoors, don't be fooled by the invisible ultraviolet (UV) rays. Invisible UV rays are present everyday, year-round, on cloudy days, in bright light, and everything in between. Just because you don't see it, doesn't mean it's not there.

According to recent research, 82 per cent of Canadians apply sunscreen when they're going to be out in the sun for extended periods of time, but only 17 per cent wear sunglasses when they prepare for extended sun exposure outdoors. Prolonged sun exposure may contribute to long-term eye damage including cataracts and macular degeneration if the eyes are not properly protected.

"Healthy sight is more than accurate vision, said Rachel Hill-Campbell, Niagara Optician. Routine eye exams are the most effective method for preserving healthy sight and detecting changes in eye health."

Be safe and sun-savvy by choosing to wear eyewear that offers adequate UVA and UVB protection. Thankfully, there are ways to protect the eyes, like wearing photochromic lenses, which block 100% of UV rays and automatically change from clear to dark in the presence of UV radiation. Plus, they block glare to improve contrast and help reduce eye strain and fatigue. Recommended by eyecare professionals, consider Transitions lenses for every member of the family.

Summer fun and the pleasures of outdoor activities are something that everyone should enjoy, but keep in mind the importance of sun safety.
