A note from the Health & Wellness Director, Wendy Isaacs
June is Cataract awareness month. Twenty-two million Americans are affected by cataracts. There are ways in which you can lessen your chances of getting cataracts. One of them is to wear sunglasses especially in the summer months when ultraviolet radiation is the strongest. Studies have also shown that ultraviolet radiation may cause the protein in your eye lens to breakdown, resulting in cataracts. When purchasing sunglasses make sure that they are 100 percent UV-absorbent. Join us in the dining room at 11:45 on June 8th to learn more about how to protect your eyes from the sun.
