July is Eye Injury Prevention Month in the United States. The first thing I think about is hurting my eyes from an accident, but something very important to consider is keeping your vision safe from sunlight.

The UV rays from the sun can cause Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. But did you know that you can also burn your corneas? It is necessary to wear sunglasses that block UV rays from childhood. For infants, keep them out of the sun.

When you are doing work where your eyes may be injured, such as mowing the lawn be sure to wear goggles to keep your eyes safe. When playing sports do the same.

Your eyesight is precious. Since there are ways to protect it, do it always.

  1. To protect your eyesight make sure you get sunglasses that wrap around because the UV rays can come in the side of sunglasses.
