Spring time is upon us here in the beautiful mountain state and the sun is out! Did you know that exposure to UV rays can burn delicate eye tissue and raise the risk of developing cataracts and cancers of the eye? UV rays that reflect off sand and water can cause eyes to sunburn, even causing temporarily blindness in just a few hours. Protecting your eyes from UV dangers and choosing the right pair of UV-blocking sunglasses as we escape the cloudiness of winter is crucial for your eye health. Visit us at any of our five Optical Shops (Charleston, Beckley, Saint Albans, Ripley and Belle), and we can help you find the right pair of sunglasses that will take care of your eyes as you enjoy the sun.
