The Vision Council Educates Consumers on UV Risks
Thursday, May 5 2016 | 00 h 00 min | Press Release
The latest consumer-focused report on UV protection, called Spare Your Sight: Using Shades for Protection and Style, was released on May 4.
The report reveals that though three quarters of the individuals surveyed are concerned about potential eye problems resulting from UV rays, only 31% protect their eyes with sunwear every time they go outside.
The survey found that people were more likely to identify the long-term effects of UV on their skin than on their eyes, and children were much less likely to protect their eyes than adults (29% to 56%).
