Every time we step outside, our eyes are exposed to harmful UVA and UVB rays, as well as High Energy Solar Blue Light. Even on overcast days, these damaging rays can penetrate through clouds and haze putting our eyes at risk. Over time, exposure to these dangerous light rays may lead to vision loss and other serious conditions like cataracts, macular degeneration and certain types of eye cancers.

Know the facts. Know the Risk. Protect your patients.

  • UV Light Exposure – UVA/UVB light exposure are known causative agents for skin cancer. Approximately 5 to 10% of all skin cancers occur in the eyelid
  • Blinding Glare – reflective glare poses a significant risk to those who drive. Glare has also been implicated as a cause of headaches – including migraines
  • Solar Blue Light Exposure – Macular Degeneration, linked to Solar Blue Light exposure, is the most common cause of vision loss for individuals over age 55
