Transitions Partners with Medical Associations to Underline Sun Protection
At the Transitions Academy 2017, Orlando Florida, a partnership with the Canadian Ophthalmological Society (COS) and the Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA) was announced.
The partnership will spearhead a sun safety message to consumers underlined by the medical authority of both Ophthalmologists and Dermatologists.
The messaging will focus on eye sun protection awareness as UV light poses risk to structures both within and around the eye.
Transitions Optical is supporting the Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA) and the Canadian Ophthalmological Society (COS) with an unrestricted educational grant to fund an Eye Sun Awareness Campaign designed to help educate Canadians on the eye health risks associated with UV radiation and how to protect themselves.
The CDA partnered in the launch of a sun safety at work website in September 2016 (www.sunsafetyatwork.ca) focusing on the 1.5 million Canadians exposed to sun at work who have a 3.5 x higher incidence skin cancer than indoor workers.
