UV Awareness Month

Posted Wednesday, July 8, 2009, at 11:23 AM

Have you suffered vision loss or other eye problems (cateracts, macular degeneration) as a result of prolonged exposure to UV rays? Contact sfowler@t-g.com or call 684-1200 ext. 214 if you would be will to share your story.

July is Ultraviolet (UV) Safety Month, sponsored by the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO). This month, you are encouraged to protect your eyes from the sun's damaging UV rays.

It's important to protect yourself and loved ones during the summer months, when UV radiation is at its highest.
