Summer eye protection – even on a cloudy day!

Summer has to arrive sometime! While we’re waiting for the warm sunny weather, UV rays are passing through the clouds and may even be enhanced by cloud cover. Just as you need to protect against sunburn even on a cloudy day, protect your eyes from too much UV exposure with a good quality pair of sunglasses whenever you’re spending time outdoors.  Consider lighter tinted sunglasses for the overcast days, save your dark tints for those sunny days.  Polarized lenses are always helpful to reduce glare, especially off water and snow.
