Protecting Your Eyes During Summer

By Donna Stark

You've purchased sunscreen and rash guards to protect your skin this summer, but have you taken any action to protect your eyes? During the bright summer days, eye protection is just as important as skin protection, and it's a good idea to start teaching this to your children as early as you can. It's also important to teach your loved ones that eye protection comes in many different forms. 

Protecting Your Eyes During Summer

By taking a proactive approach to eye protection during the next couple of months, you can reduce the risk of damage and injury for everyone in the family. Here are some of the top suggestions on how to do so from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

  • Sunglasses - Sunglasses are generally the first choice that people make when it comes to the protection of their eyes, but sadly, many end up selecting ones that offer little to no protection against the sun's rays. Your best bet is to make sure the ones you pick protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Goggles - Don't let a day at the pool turn into red, burning eyes. Protect everyone's eyes by making sure each family member has their own set of goggles. And keep in mind that goggles aren't only for the pool. Bring them to the beach or lake too!
  • Hats - Even if you do wear sunglasses for all your outdoor activities, you may be missing out on an extra layer of protection if you don't wear a hat as well! No matter how good your sunglasses are, they won't cover every spot around your eyes. Add a hat with a wide brim to decrease your exposure and protect your eyes and face even more.
  • Industrial goggles - Mowing the yard, cutting down trees, and setting off fireworks are common summertime activities that involve a lot of extra debris flying around. Because of this, it is vital you protect your eyes as much as possible by getting yourself a pair of industrial goggles to wear. You won't believe the amount of stuff that comes flying your way!

So Much to See and Do

The best thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones is to make sure you are all wearing protective eyewear and hats over the summer. Doing so will keep everyone safe and healthy so summer can truly be enjoyed in every way possible!
