Hot tips for protecting your eyes this summer: UV Safety Tips

AUGUST

With the sun shining brightly, Doheny Eye Institute is here to remind you of the importance of safeguarding your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV exposure can lead to serious eye conditions, but with a few essential UV safety tips, you can protect your vision:

 

  • Wear UV-Protective Sunglasses: Shield your eyes with high-quality sunglasses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
  • Time Your Outdoor Activities: Avoid the peak UV hours between 10 am and 4 pm or take extra precautions during these times.
  • Embrace Wide-Brimmed Hats: Combine stylish sun hats with sunglasses for added eye protection outdoors.
  • UV-Blocking Contact Lenses: Opt for contact lenses that provide an extra layer of UV defense.

Our dedicated team at Doheny Eye Institute is always available to answer your questions and provide expert guidance on UV safety and overall eye health.

Enjoy the sun responsibly and take care of your eyes!
