MOST PEOPLE RECOGNIZE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SUN-EXPOSURE AND SKIN-CANCER.  BUT, FEWER THAN ONE IN THREE AMERICANS REALIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF U-V-PROTECTION FOR THEIR EYES--TO PREVENT VISUAL-DAMAGE AND -IMPAIRMENT.  THE AMERICAN OPTOMETRIC ASSOCIATION OFFERS THESE TIPS:  EVEN THOUGH U-V-RADIATION CANNOT BE SEEN OR FELT, BOTH "U-V-A"- AND "U-V-B"-RAYS CAN CAUSE HARM TO YOUR EYES.  LONG-TERM EFFECTS CAN INCLUDE CATARACTS, CANCER, "AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION", AND DAMAGE TO THE RETINA.  TO PROTECT YOUR EYES WHEN GOING OUTSIDE, YOU SHOULD THINK OF SUN-EYEWEAR AS PART OF YOUR NORMAL OUTDOOR-ROUTINE--AND MAKE SURE THAT THE SUNGLASSES THAT YOU BUY PROVIDE 100-PERCENT "U-V-A"- AND "U-V-B"-PROTECTION.  ALSO, CHILDREN'S EYES ARE EXTREMELY SUSCEPTIBLE TO U-V-DAMAGE--SO TEACH THEM THE IMPORTANCE OF WEARING SUNGLASSES AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE.  TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE DANGERS OF U-V-RAYS--AND THE IMPORTANCE OF KEEPING YOUR EYES PROTECTED--VISIT "A-O-A"-DOT-ORG.
