The Pulse of “SchoolCare, Summer 2021

Protect your eye health this summer and all year long

Published July 8, 2021

July is UV safety awareness month. However, it’s important to remember that your eyes are at risk to UV rays all year. Studies show that long-term exposure to bright sunlight in any season can be harmful to your eye health.

In support of UV Safety Awareness, we encourage you to focus on eye protection when you are out soaking up the sun this summer by:

  • Wearing UV blocking sunglasses
  • Doubling up with a wide-brimmed hat
  • Talking to your doctor about the best UV blocking contact lenses
  • Keeping in mind that the sun is usually strongest in the morning and afternoon

Speaking of UV blocking eyewear, did you elect VSP Vision this plan year?
