A 2016 report from the US Vision Council revealed that although 75% of Americans are concerned about the effects of UV light on their ocular health, only 31% are actually wearing sunglasses. The best protection is to wear polarized sunglasses that block out 99 – 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Wearing proper sun protection will protect your eyes from cataracts, macular degeneration, ocular melanomas, and even skin cancer. This is especially important for kids as well. Dr. Ramsey recommends Maui Jim sunglasses because of their superior optics and best long term protection from eye disease.
