July is UV Safety Awareness Month, and we’re here to inform you about the risks associated with unprotected sun exposure and things you can do to minimize your risk.

As many of us get ready to enjoy those warm rays this summer, we must remember to protect our skin and eyes from the damaging effects of the sun, ESPECIALLY those of us who have employees that work outside primarily.

Besides sun protection such as clothing and sunscreen, the eyes should not be overlooked. Ultraviolet (UV) UV protection on lens is just like sunscreen for our eyes. It's used to keep the sun's harmful UV rays from damaging our eyes and the skin around our eyes. UV treatment in eyeglass lenses prevents those same rays from damaging our eyes.
