Ready for the Sun?

With warmer weather approaching and outdoor activities picking up, it's time think about protecting your eyes from UV exposure. Just like sunscreen, sunglasses are imperative to protecting your eyes from the damaging rays.

As the public learned from Anderson Cooper last year, photokeratitis or "sunburns" on the eye can be extremely painful and serious. Symptoms can include red eyes, a gritty feeling in the eyes, extreme sensitivity to light and excessive tearing.

The effects to the cornea are typically temporary, but long-term is directly related to the development of cataracts.  

Drs. Factor and Lang recommend wearing UV protection sunglasses whenever you're in the sun. We offer a wide selection of both non-prescription and prescription sunglasses to fit any need.
