Sunglasses are Important All Year
It might be the dead winter, and the temperatures are low, but we're thinking about sunshine and dreaming of summer vacation. UV radiation can penetrate through cloud cover, but most people don't think about it when it's cold and snowy.
Tallmadge Family Eye Care is bringing some summer vibes to Northeast Ohio in the hopes of increasing awareness of common UV-related eye problems, which could be prevented by wearing sunglasses.
Protect Your Eyes From:
Cataracts: The clouding of the natural lens in the eye.
Macular Degeneration: the leading cause of vision loss in American adults.
Pterygium: A growth caused by UV damage on the white of the eye, which can block vision. Common on people who work outdoors in sun and wind.
Skin Cancer: Skin Cancer is usually found on and around the eyelids.
Corneal Sunburn: Reflections off water, snow, ice, and other bright surfaces can cause this very painful temporary vision loss.
