National Sunglasses Day

National Sunglasses Day

National Sunglasses Day is an annual holiday celebrated on June 27th in the United States. The holiday was created by The Vision Council, a non-profit trade association that represents the manufacturers and suppliers of the optical industry, to raise awareness about the importance of wearing sunglasses to protect the eyes from harmful UV rays.

The holiday encourages people to wear sunglasses not just as a fashion accessory, but as a health necessity. Exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause a variety of eye problems, including cataracts, macular degeneration, and even skin cancer around the eyelids.

National Sunglasses Day is an opportunity for eyewear retailers, optical industry professionals, and eye care organizations to promote the use of sunglasses to protect the eyes and raise awareness about the dangers of UV rays. The holiday is celebrated through social media campaigns, events, and promotions.

If you participate in National Sunglasses Day, make sure to wear sunglasses that block at least 99% of both UVA and UVB radiation. And remember, it’s not just a one-day thing. Wearing sunglasses whenever you’re outside, even on cloudy days, can help protect your eyes and keep them healthy for years to come.
