Eye Health Tip:
Sunglasses and sports goggles
Everyone, including children of all ages, should wear UV coated sunglasses when spending a lot of time outdoors. Even on cloudy days. Sun exposure, over time, can lead to cataract formation and macular degeneration. Think of sunglasses as suntan lotion for the eyes. Sports goggles (with or without one's prescription) are very useful when swimming and playing contact sports for everyone.
