May is Ultraviolet Awareness Month
With spring in full swing and sunny summer skies ahead, here’s what you should know
about your eyes and Ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV radiation consists of three bands of
invisible light, UVA, UVB and UVC. It is IMPORTANT to know is that for every 1,000
feet above sea level, our ultraviolet exposure increases approximately 4%. Therefore,
living in Boulder County, we have an additional 20% more exposure to ultraviolet
radiation . . . all the more reason to protect your eyes with a quality pair of sunglasses
