Adults and even children who work or play in the sun for extended periods of time are at the greatest risk. The risk of sun-related eye problems is even higher for the following people! Ask yourself:
- Have you had cataract and refractive surgery?
- Do you or your family have retinal degeneration including macular degeneration?
- Are you on certain medicines, such as tetracycline, sulfa drugs, birth control pills, diuretics and tranquilizers (that increase the eye’s sensitivity to light)?
- Are you a welder, medical technologist or do you work in the graphic arts or in the manufacturing of electronic circuit boards?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, talk to Dr. Penny or one of our eyewear specialists to help you select the best option for you to protect your eyes!
