Here in the Sunshine State, we have access to warm weather for the majority of the year, beautiful beaches, and plenty of bright sunny days.

Tests have shown that a driver needs 23 feet of extra road to stop when driving into the sun. Uncomfortable glare makes vision difficult because the light obscures details on the road or the water.

Over time, exposure to sunlight can not only damage the skin of your eyelids but also the cornea, lens, and other parts of the eye. This damage can increase your risk of developing cataracts, macular degeneration, pterygium, and skin cancer. Read more … Are You Sun Smart For Summer?
