The sun is so bright you better wear shades!

Did you know your eyes can be sunburned?

As you're soaking in the summer sun at the beach or by the pool, be sure to shield your eyes from the sun's rays.

Reflection of UV rays off sand and water can lead to temporary, partial blindness. UV rays can also penetrate the structures of your eyes and cause cell damage. Many studies have found that continued exposure to sunlight may increase the risk of cancers, macular degeneration, pterygium and cataracts.

In recognition of UV Safety Month, Lehmann Eye Center suggests taking simple steps to protect your vision. When you're stepping out this summer, add 100% UV-blocking sunglasses and top off your summer wardrobe with a large-brimmed sun hat.
