  • #DYK that 26% of adults rarely or never wear sunglasses? Protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Schedule your annual eye exam today. #NationalSunglassesDay
  • #DYK that 58% of Americans spend the most time outdoors from 2 PM – 6 PM, which is peak UV time? We want to help you find the perfect suns for your outdoor activities. Call us to schedule your annual exam today. #NationalSunglassesDay
  • Name one place you cannot apply sunscreen on your body? Your EYES, of course! Come in for your annual exam and shop our latest sunwear. #NationalSunglassesDay
  • Make UV protection a family affair. UV damage is cumulative, occurring over a lifetime of exposure. Children are extra vulnerable, so get them in the habit of wearing sunglasses early! This will help to mitigate serious vision problems in the future. #NationalSunglassesDay
  • Sun out, shades on. Selfie time! Celebrate #NationalSunglassesDay with your kids and snap a cute pic wearing sunnies.
