How To Protect Your Eyes with A Good Pair of #Sunglasses

It’s hot and sunny out there, at least most of the time! That’s why it’s so important to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays, especially if you and your children are spending a lot of time outdoors. As part of National Sunglasses Day last month, The Vision Council published a report with valuable information on eye care and the importance of sunglasses. With the same idea of using sunscreen and UV protective clothing to protect skin in the sun, parents should be purchasing and using sunglasses for themselves and their children for any outdoor activity. The report offers tips for purchasing a pair of quality sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection. I received a fabulous pair of Nicole Miller shades for National Sunglasses Day, as well as a pair of too cute red, polka dot Kidz BanZ. The Nicole Miller sunglasses offer a nice, dark shade for our Florida sun, and they look fabulous! Kidz BanZ are one of the best options out there for infants and older.

As you head outside, make sure you and your children are wearing the best sunglasses possible.
