As you slather on sunscreen to protect your skin this summer, don’t forget sunglasses to protect your eyes. The same harmful rays that damage skin can also increase your risk of developing eye problems. SUMMER is a great time to plan a vacation and special outdoor activities. Before you begin planning how you and the family will spend the sunny days ahead, here is some information that will help you safeguard your eyes and maintain healthy sight not just this summer but for a lifetime.

With the weather in the city turning hot and sultry, it is a good time to increase your intake of fluids and take special precautions if spending long hours outdoors.
Summer is upon us and with the warm weather comes a cornucopia of delightful fruits and vegetables that not only taste great but are excellent health boosters as well!
