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.

Watch a video about ultra violet rays:

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.

Reduced Staff and Office Hours

Our office will remain open for patients who are experiencing any eye-related issues, including emergency visits, non-routine exams to replace lost or broken glasses and refilling of contact lens prescriptions. We will be working reduced hours, with a skeleton staff. Please call before coming into the office, as we will not be seeing any walk-ins. We are also offering telehealth for patients experiencing any eye-related infections for those who are unable to or are not comfortable coming into the office.

We appreciate your understanding in working to keep our staff and patients safe. Please take good care of yourself and stay healthy! We will get through this!
