Protect Your Eyes from the Sun!

When preparing to work outdoors on the farm we consider the clothing to be worn and how to protect our skin through the use of sunscreen.  We often forget that we need to protect our eyes from the sun as well.   We know sunglasses can help with this but did you know that prescription eyewear should have UV light protection too?   If you do not protect your eyes against UV rays, lens and retina damage can harm your vision.

Reflected light from water, sand, pavement, snow and reflective building structures & equipment can cause eye burn.  Keep in mind that UV rays are not blocked by clouds. Protect your eyes against UV ray exposure even on cloudy days.
