Happy #NationalSunglassesDay !!

PROTECT YOUR BABY BLUES, EMERALD GREENS
 AND CHOCOLATE BROWNS!!


Hi All It's Cody!! My Mom and I are sunglass freaks as evidenced by my photo above and Mom's classic that has been on our header above for YEARS , but every day millions of humans  make the decision to not wear sunglasses or other ultraviolet (UV)-protective eyewear. This is SUPER risky behavior!


UV radiation is often recognized as the culprit for sunburns and skin cancer but most people are oblivious to the damaging impact the wavelengths inflict on our vision. The problem originates with the sun’s unfiltered ultraviolet (UV) rays. Just as these rays can burn skin cells, they can also harm unprotected eyes. A full day outside without protection can cause immediate, temporary issues such as swollen or red eyes and hypersensitivity to light. Years of cumulative exposure can cause cancer of the eye or eyelid, accelerate conditions like cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
National Sunglasses Day is held annually on June 27. It is not only an observance but a reminder that our shades are a health necessity and it is important to wear sunglasses or other UV-protective eyewear every day to protect long-term eye health.

NOW GO AND PUT ON
 YOUR SUNGLASSES!!!
(even "CHEAP" Sunglasses!)
and enjoy one of Mom's
FAVORITE TUNES!!

  7. You are so right, sunglasses are really important! Our Mama is really sensitive to sunlight.She wears sunglasses even on partially cloudy days and tells people she is part of the Witness Protection Program (her humour not ours!). We wished your Mam lived closer to us too. Our Mama would love to go to the market with her! :)

  9. What a cute photo! Our mommy always wears sunglasses because the brightness makes her squint and gives her a headache. She's weird but at least she's protected!

  10. You look amazing in your shades, Cody! I would have a permanent migraine if I didn't wear my funky animal print sunglasses every day!

  15. My human never wears sunglasses... but then, she is rarely out in the sun! She probably should look into vitamin D supplements, she gets so little sunshine!

  16. My wife won't go anywhere without her sunglasses but I believe if any of that were true, humans would not have survived the last 200,000 years. Of course, I'm also the wierdo that thinks it's the sunscreen that causes cancer.

  17. When mom wore contacts she was a sunglasses freak too. Now that she wears glasses instead, she doesn't have prescription sunglasses. She should probably do something about that!

  18. Very cool sunglasses! Our mom has contact lenses with UV filters, and she also wears sunglasses when she is outside.

  20. My Mom has those photogray lenses in her glasses which she wears always - so she's protected but indeed Cody people forget to protect their peepers! Not good! Thanks for reminding everyone to wear cheap or expensive eye protection WHATEVA!

    Hugs, Sammy

  21. Like Sammy's Mom, I have the photogray built right into my regular glasses, so it's never a problem for me!
    Good idea for this day to remind everyone to protect their eyes, and you are stylin' in your sunglasses, Cody! :)
