Summer is here! And that means it’s time to get your sunglasses on to protect your eyes from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays that come from the sun. Why? Because too much exposure to UV rays can damage your eyes and cause cataracts, macular degeneration, eyelid cancer, and sometimes even vision loss.

Every year, All About Eyes joins with The Vision Council to promote wearing sunglasses for National Sunglasses Day, held on June 27.

Sunglasses aren’t just a fun accessory, they help to reduce glare from water, sand, and even roadways. They can stop you from squinting, which causes eye fatigue that can lead to headaches. And they protect you from environmental elements like wind, dust, and flying sand.

So, wear your #SolarFlair, get your sunnies on, and shade your eyes this summer! If you’re in the market for a new pair of sunglasses, All About Eyes has a great selection of eyewear protection that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.

Happy #NationalSunglassesDay!
