Remember, when you are attending outdoor events, it’s important to protect your eyes. Be sure to take your sunglasses (with 100% UVA and UVB protection) and wear a wide-brimmed hat to outdoor events to protect your eyes from the sun. Remember: even when it is cloudy, the sun’s UVA and UVB rays can damage your eyes.
