International Sunglasses Day
Look Sharp on International Sunglasses Day!
Anyone who enjoys spending time in the sun and wants to look cool while protecting their eyes is sure to have fun on International Sunglasses Day. The event takes place on June 27th and a number of events are organised by the Vision council to help promote the importance of wearing sunglasses.
Research has shown that people who do not wear sunglasses risk doing substantial damage to their eyes due to the harmful effects of the sun’s rays. Even on cloudy days, sunlight can still be strong enough to cause lasting damage to the eyes, which means that it is important to wear sunglasses or another form of UV eye protection at all times.
To help celebrate and promote International Sunglasses Day, the Vision Council is encouraging both groups and individuals to get involved by taking photographs of themselves wearing sunglasses. These photos can be shared on various social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook with the hashtags #SunglassSelfie and #NationalSunglassesDay.
