Stay safe this Fourth of July holiday whether you’re soaking up the sun at a barbecue or watching dazzling firework displays. While spending time outdoors, it’s important to remember to protect yourself from UV rays with sunscreen and sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection.
Once it gets dark and it’s time to put your sunglasses away, it’s still important to be vigilant about eye safety, especially if you are handling fireworks. Each year, the month surrounding the Fourth of July has a spike in the number of injuries caused by fireworks. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, last year 14% of those injuries were to the eyes. Yikes!
