UV protection: Not only for your skin
With the official start to summer just behind us, thought we'd share just how important it is to protect your eyes from harmful UV Rays. We often remember to protect our skin by using sunscreens and sunblocks, but how often do we really think about protecting our eyes? Or our children's?
According to this article, "Keep an 'eye' on UV Rays" by Chad Douglas, "exposure to UV-A and UV-B radiation from the sun's rays can have both long- and short-term effects on the eyes and your vision." It's also extremely important to start getting your children and teens in the habit of wearing protective eyewear when outside. "Dr. Paul Tracy from SPECS says start your kids in sunglasses as early as you can get them to wear them."
You can shop in confidence with Peepers! Our entire line of reading sunglasses and bifocal sun readers offer total UV-A and UV-B protection.
So, the next time you're out soaking up some rays, take a minute and grab your favorite pair of shades-and don't forget the SPF-15!

Aging In the Eyes of Children
Everything is a little more humorous through the eyes of an innocent child. I found this article posted in Canada’s Chilliwack Times Online yesterday and got such a laugh. Some elementary school age children were asked what life would be like if they were 100 years old. So take a few minutes out of your day for a good laugh! Below are just a few-ENJOY!!
“When I’m 100 years old, I will still have my video games, a small car and go out for dinner. I will not be able to ride a bike, skateboard or scooter or have a radio. I’ll name my kids Bob and Harry and have a house with four rooms. I’ll wake up at 1:20 in the morning and go to bed at 7:30, and get breakfast at 1:30.”
Jett Thomas, Grade 3
“If I lasted to 100 years old, I would have a cane and a pair of glasses too. I would have grayish hair and I would barely even be able to walk.”
Cole Mayes, Grade 2
“When I’m 100 years old I will watch lots of football. I will not be able to jump or play Wii. My back will hurt a lot. I will get my robot servant to buy and get me food. I will eat a lot. It will be fun. I will make a book company called Orange Inc. I also want to be an astronaut. I will have a pet turtle and I’ll keep my pet Wags. It will be a lot of fun.”
Landon Johnston, Grade 2
“If I was 100 years old, I would quit dancing. I would have a dog. I would have a cane maybe. I would take walks and I would have sleeps and maybe, just maybe, I will have glasses, and my hair will turn gray. And I might eat tuna–yuck!”
Jordyn Zutter, Grade 3
