Lenses for UV Protection

OVEREXPOSURE TO
UVA AND UVB RAYS

Did you know 3.2 million people every year go blind from eye conditions caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays? Though most of us understand the importance of protecting our skin from the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays during outdoor activities like hiking and biking, most of us don't know that exposing our eyes to the sun's UVA and UVB rays can also be damaging.
