Myth or fact? You don't need to worry about UV rays when it's cloudy outside. MYTH! 90% of UV rays come through clouds! Although the weather may be overcast, our eyes are still exposed to harmful UV rays. These rays can also reflect off of water, snow, sand, concrete and glass ☀️ #NationalSunAwarenessWeek . . .
Myth or fact? All sunglasses block 100% of UV radiation from reaching our eyes. MYTH! Not all sunglasses are created equal! Make sure the label of your sunglasses says 100% UVA and UVB protection ☀️ #NationalSunAwarenessWeek . . .
Myth or fact? Are young people more vulnerable to UV exposure? FACT! Researchers estimate that 50% of lifetime exposure to UV rays happens before age 18! Increased exposure at a young age can be related to youth spending more time outside, having larger pupils, clearer lenses and few choosing to wear sunglasses or hats. Just another reason why it's so important to protect your eyes with a good quality pair of sunglasses! ☀️ #NationalSunAwarenessWeek . . .
