Safety Harbor Optical Blog—by Dr. Shawn Hollander, OD, PA

July is UV Safety Month

July is UV Safety Month

Studies show that long-term exposure to bright sunlight may increase the risk of cataracts and growths on the eye, including cancer. UV rays reflected off sand and water can cause eyes to sunburn, potentially resulting in temporary blindness in just a few hours. 

In support of UV Safety Month this July, Safety Harbor Optical reminds you of the importance of shielding eyes from the sun's harmful rays with 100% UV-blocking sunglasses. 

Please wear your shades at all times!
