Sunglasses can protect the eye from long exposure

As the sunlight hours increases as we near the Summer months, Dennis Lin, O.D. Inc. have donated 200 pairs of sunglasses to children in need in Jamaica.  As part of the Caribbean Outreach program, Dr. Ward from the Community Health Alliance of Pasadena will be delivering the sunglasses as she travels to Jamaica on her voluntary mission to help those in need of medical care.  In total, Dennis Lin, O.D. Inc have donated nearly 600 pairs of sunglasses over the past few years.  Most of the sun damage from harmful U.V. rays occur before the age of 18.  It is always best to protect your valuable eyes with sunglasses.
