Watch Out for Winter UV

sun-in-winterA lot of people think they only need to protect themselves from ultraviolet (UV) rays during peak hours on hot, sunny days.  Winter is a great time to debunk the myths about UV.

-80% of UV rays can penetrate clouds.

-Those who engage in winter sports may be more at risk, because they are spending time at higher elevations and getting a UV "bounce" from snow.

-Maximum UV exposure is at a solar angle of 20-40 degrees, not at noon when the sun is straight up overhead.

-Sunglasses and hats help.

Acuvue Brand Contact Lenses add an extra layer of protection from UV-A and UV-B.
