Summer’s in Sight!

Before long, you won’t have to look at the weather to know if it’s a good day to wear shorts.

At San Antonio Eye Specialists we hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer. Part of keeping safe is wearing sunscreen and sunglasses to protect your skin and eyes, and making sure you stay hydrated if you’re going to be outside a lot. Many times people don’t wear sunscreen because they think they’ll tan better without it, but it’s not worth opening yourself up to melanoma. Similarly, long-term exposure to ultraviolet light, dust and dryness can cause cataracts to form sooner in life or cause some people to develop a pterygium. Also, squinting frequently in the sunlight can cause crow’s feet to form around the eyes. Find a pair of sunglasses that looks great on you and wear it!
