Protect Your Eyes Against UV Rays

Anytime we go outside, especially here in sunny Southern California, we are exposed to UV rays. These UV rays can have certain benefits, but also some harmful effects.
UV rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the sun. They have a wavelength slightly lower than that of light. What does that mean? Well, it means that you can’t really see them but they are soaking into your body.
These invisible rays do have some benefits, including:

  • Improves mood
  • Strengthens bones and muscles
  • Strengthens our immune system
  • Treats certain skin conditions, like psoriasis
  • Gives us a tan!
Unfortunately, too much of any good thing can have harmful effects, including:
  • Skin cancer
  • Wrinkling
  • Premature aging
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Cataracts
  • Pterygium
  • Cancers of the eyelids

Are Contacts For You?

The vast majority of people requiring vision correction can wear contact lenses without any problems. New materials and lens care technologies have made today’s contacts more comfortable, safer and easier to wear. Consider the questions and answers below to help assess whether they’re an option you should consider.

Contact lens wear may be difficult if:

  • Your eyes are severely irritated by allergies
  • You work in an environment with lots of dust or chemicals
  • You have an overactive thyroid, uncontrolled diabetes, or severe arthritis in your hands
  • Your eyes are overly dry due to pregnancy or medications you are taking

After a thorough eye examination, your suitability for contact lenses and the specific contact lens option that best meets your requirements will be determined.
