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.

We are excited to tell our valued patients that we will be opening the clinic to routine eye care beginning May 4.

Please be mindful that there will be limited access so we ask that you schedule an appointment before coming in. We apologize in advance for potentially running behind schedule as we implement best practices for your and our safety. If we are running late, we ask that you wait in your car until the previous patient leaves.

Also, we will only allow so many patients in the office so we request that only the patient with the appointment come to the office, obviously, except for a parent accompanying his or her child or a caregiver.

We request that you apply hand sanitizer upon arrival at the office and to please wear a mask when they come.

All exam rooms and instruments will be cleaned and disinfected between patients.

We very much look forward to seeing you!
