Help The Vision Council celebrate National Sunglasses Day by sharing the importance of wearing ultraviolet (UV)-protective sunwear and eyewear on your social media channels. We’ve provided sample Facebook and Twitter content – that can also easily be used for Instagram – below. Don’t forget to include #NationalSunglassDay and #SunglassSelfie in your promotions!

General UV Content:

1. Sun protection, including wearing sunglasses, is essential anytime you venture outdoors. Sunglasses not only protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, but also flying debris and other hazards. From exploring local state parks to scaling cliffs, a true outdoorsman knows that the right pair of sports shades make all the difference. #NationalSunglassesDay

2. How often do you wear your sunglasses outside? Bottom line: Everyone should wear them, even when skies are gray. UV rays can infiltrate the eye no matter how many clouds are hanging around, and it’s best to get in the habit of wearing them all the time. Remember, preparation today can help sustain healthy vision for the future! #NationalSunglassesDay

3. Did you know your eyes can be sunburned? It’s true – without protection, your eyes can be sunburned after exposure to harmful UV rays, leading to long-term UV-related eye damage. The simple act of wearing your sunglasses can mitigate serious vision risks for years to come. #NationalSunglassesDay

4. Protect their eyes like they are your own! Enjoy YOUR vacation while your kids enjoy theirs – without squinting. As you enjoy the summer vacation with your family, remember to protect everyone from UV risks. Kids’ eyes are at greater risk because their ocular lenses can’t filter UV light and prevent it from reaching the retina as effectively as adults, making them more susceptible to retinal damage over time. Help us spread the word and begin protection at an early age! #NationalSunglassesDay

5. Make UV protection a family affair. UV damage is cumulative, occurring over a lifetime of exposure. Children are extra vulnerable, so get them in the habit of wearing sunglasses early! This will help to mitigate serious vision problems in the future. #NationalSunglassesDay

6. About 25% of an individual’s lifetime exposure to UV radiation occurs before the age of 18. So stop by our office today and get your kids a pair of sunglasses. It’s never too early or too late to start protecting your eyes! #NationalSunglassesDay

7. To prevent UV-related eye damage, sunglasses should become part of each day’s “out-the-door” routine. Need a new pair? Check out your options at Eyecessorize.com. #NationalSunglassesDay

8. The most important considerations when purchasing sunglasses are UV protection, fit and comfort. Sunglasses that aren’t comfortable will not be worn, and without UV protection, shades aren’t effective. So research your options, talk with an eye-care professional, and learn more about the lenses and tints that will work best for your lifestyle. #NationalSunglassesDay
