NTERI – Sunglasses Day Awareness & Contest

June 27 was National Sunglasses Day!
The Faculty, Staff and Students at NTERI want to reminding you of the importance of wearing sunglasses! Wearing your sunglasses is one of the ways you can protect your vision.
The National Eye Institute recommends making a habit of wearing your sunglasses — even on cloudy days. The sun’s UV rays can harm your eyes. Wearing sunglasses that block 99 to 100% of both UVA and UVB radiation, protecting your eyes and lowering your risk for cataracts. So be sure to add sunglasses to your must-have list before you leave the house.
Enter for a chance to win a prize by following NTERI’s Facebook page at (5) North Texas Eye Research Institute | Facebook AND sending a picture of yourself wearing sunglasses through a DM by Friday 7/2/21.
