July is ultraviolet (UV) safety awareness month. UV rays are an unseen form of radiation that comes from the sun, tanning beds, and sunlamps.

It is crucially important to protect your eyes because they are exposed to UV rays all year round. They can penetrate, and change skin cells. Unprotected sun exposure can lead to premature skin aging, vision issues, and skin cancer

Here are some tips that will help you reduce the damage of UV rays:

  • Select sunglasses that block UV rays (Check for 100 percent UV protection)
  • Put on sunscreen
  • Wear proper clothing (long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats)
  • Never look directly at the sun
