The official beginning of summer is rapidly approaching, but the sunshine and heat always seem to arrive months in advance for Las Cruces. If you, like other desert dwellers, are planning to engage in summertime outdoor activities like hiking, biking, pool parties and barbeques, it’s important that you remember to take the proper precautions against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

Did you know that just like your skin, your eyes can be damaged by the sun’s UV radiation?  Just as sunscreen is important for protecting your skin, it is also important that you do your best to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. The radiation from the sun can cause eye health issues, such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and skin cancer on the delicate tissue around your eyes. Instead of dealing with the long term medical issues, why not help yourself to a brand new pair of sunglasses?
