Longer Days =
More UV Exposure
Everyone Needs Sunglasses
Preventing UV exposure is important at every age as the damage it causes is cumulative and cannot be reversed. It is estimated that 65% of adults are unaware of the link between UV exposure and serious eye diseases, such as cataracts and macular degeneration.
Highlighted below are alarming statistics reported in The Vision Council's 2015 UV Protection Report:
- 1 in 3 parents of children under 13 report their kids rarely or never wear sunglasses
- 1 in 4 adults rarely or never wear sunglasses when going outside
- up to 1 in 5 of all cataract cases are attributable to UV radiation and are preventable
- 1 in 10 skin cancers are found on the eyelid
