The beach can be a lot of fun, but it can also be damaging to your eyes. Wearing proper eye protection is one of the most important things you can do, but it isn’t the only way to protect your vision when you’re seaside. Here are some tips to consider on your next beach trip.
  1. Choose sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection. If you normally wear prescription glasses, you can get prescription sunglasses, as well.
  2. Wearing goggles can help protect your eyes from pool chlorine as well as salt water. Choose a pair that fits well and are comfortable to wear.
  3. If you get sand in your eye, don’t rub it! Blink several times and use saline solution to flush it and enlist medical help if needed.
By observing proper eye safety, you will preserve your sight to enjoy many beach days in the future. Visit Island Eyecare today to shop our wide variety of sunglass brands, or make an appointment!
