Protecting Your Eyes From UV Rays

Every day—sunny or cloudy, Spring through Winter—you are exposed to damaging ultraviolet rays. Though you may not realize it, it’s there—UV radiation is invisible to the naked eye.

Did you know…

  • UV light can “sunburn” the eye’s surface and cause benign yellowish growths on the human eye
  • Prolonged exposure to harmful UVA and UVB radiation over time can contribute to serious, age-related eye conditions or diseases
  • These diseases include cataracts and macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in people over age 60
  • Only lens materials or lens treatments that promise 100% protection against both UVA and UVB rays protect your eyes fully from the harmful rays of the sun. Demand 100% UV protection.
