UV Protection with Contact Lenses

MEC blog

Most people know how damaging the sun’s UV rays can be to the skin, but did you know that those same UV rays can also be damaging to the eye?

Certain Contact Lenses can offer additional protection! ☀️They can absorb harmful ‪#‎UV‬ rays that reduces the amount of radiation that reaches the surface of the ‪#‎eye‬. 👀  The contact lenses can also protect against the radiation that can come from above or around the sides of your sunglasses! 😎.

Come in and talk to our doctors about your specific outdoor activities so that we can identify your risk of UV exposure and get you the appropriate protection.
