Transitions Optical Offers Tips on How to Protect Eyes for Outdoor Sports Fans
Date:7/29/2008

Participants and spectators are reminded to protect their eyes and skin

from dangerous UV rays on and off the field

PINELLAS PARK, Fla., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- For many people the summer season is an eagerly awaited time to enjoy outdoor sports and activities. However, many forget to protect their eyes from invisible ultraviolet (UV) rays. Most people who practice outdoor sports -- particularly in the summer -- are conscious of the need to use sunblock to protect the skin, but few are aware that the eyes are at risk from the sun's damaging radiation.

Unprotected eyes are subject to numerous eye health issues, such as cataracts, Pterygium, and macular degeneration. UV rays have a cumulative effect, so when spending time outdoors it is important to take the proper precautions to protect the eyes.

"Although many people are careful when protecting their skin from the UV rays, it surprises me to see that very few extend that care to their eyes," said Dr. Madeline Romeu, O.D., F.A.A.O. "I recommend that all my patients who wear prescription lenses and spend time outdoors consider photochromics, such as Transitions(R) lenses."

Clear indoors, Transitions lenses automatically adjust to sunglass-dark to block 100 percent of UV rays and reduce painful and eye fatigue. Available in the widest range of lens designs and materials, including shatter-resistant polycarbonate, Transitions lenses are ideal for athletes and sports enthusiasts alike.

"Many summer sports require spending extended periods of time outdoors, participants and spectators are subject to long hours of sun exposure, which place the eyes at great risk for damage," added Dr. Romeu. "Protecting your eyes today and everyday will help maintain long-term healthy sight and wellness."

Dr. Romeu offers recommendations that will help ensure healthy sight year round:

-- Schedule regular visits to your local eyecare professional
