Sunglasses Can Help Protect Your Eyes and Prevent Macular Degeneration

With the beginning of spring and the first dose of sunny skies and 70-degree temperatures drawing us outside after the cold winter months, our thoughts naturally turn to days spent outside, whether doing yard work, enjoying a pool or laying on a beach. But with numerous outdoor sports and activities slated, it’s also a great time to remember the importance of protecting your eyes with the proper sunglasses.

The government-sponsored initiative Prevent Blindness America and its associated website have published a helpful article called Protect Your Eyes from the Sun which offers some basic information and tips about sunglasses. According to the article, long-term exposure to UV rays can lead to cataracts, macular degeneration, or skin cancer around the eyelids.

Take a few minutes to read the piece, then go to www.MaxiAids.com and see the variety of eye protection we carry. MaxiAids specializes in sunglasses designed to fit over prescription eyeglasses.
