Protecting Your Eyes From UV Rays

Every day—sunny or cloudy, Spring through Winter—you are exposed to damaging ultraviolet rays. Though you may not realize it, it’s there—UV radiation is invisible to the naked eye.

Watch a video about ultra violet rays:

Did you know…

  • UV light can "sunburn" the eye's surface and cause benign yellowish growths on the human eye
  • Prolonged exposure to harmful UVA and UVB radiation over time can contribute to serious, age-related eye conditions or diseases
  • These diseases include cataracts and macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in people over age 60
  • Only lens materials or lens treatments that promise 100% protection against both UVA and UVB rays protect your eyes fully from the harmful rays of the sun. Demand 100% UV protection.

Based on recent guidelines from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the AOA (American Optometric Association) and the North Carolina Board of Optometry, Triangle Family Eye Care will close starting Monday, March 30th.

We will be open for glasses and contact lens pick up only the week of March 22nd. Doctor Prajapati will not be seeing any patients unless it’s an ocular emergency.

Ocular emergencies may be any of the following symptoms: redness/eye pain, sudden loss of vision (central or peripheral), trauma to the eye, contact lens-related eye pain.

We will keep you posted as to when our office will reopen as this is a fluid situation.

Thank you, Dr. Prajapati and staff at TFEC
