The Health Department:  What We Do

Eyes on Ultraviolet (UV) Safety

UV Safety Month

Eye medical doctors (ophthalmologists) caution us that too much exposure to UV light raises the risks of eye diseases, including cataract, growths on the eye, and cancer. Strong exposure to snow reflection can also quickly cause painful damage called snow blindness. People of all ages should take precautions whenever they are outdoors.
