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.

A Message to Our Patients

In an abundance of caution, we have decided to extend our office mask mandate until June 1st. Most, but not all, of our employees are vaccinated. We are hoping to have our entire staff vaccinated by the end of May.

Until all staff members are vaccinated, the continued safety and well-being of our patients and staff is our number one focus. Until June 1st, masks will be required to be worn by all patients, visitors, and staff while in our practice. We will also continue to follow the CDC’s guidelines and recommendations throughout the practice.

We thank you for your understanding and helping us protect our patients, families, and staff.

TSO Mansfield is locally owned and operated.
