Protect Against UV ‘Whatever it Takes’

A public awareness campaign has been launched, encouraging Australians to do ‘Whatever it Takes’ to protect their eyes from UV damage this summer.

The Optometrists Association Australia (OAA) campaign, supported by Transitions Optical, is designed to raise awareness of the dangers of UV radiation and encourage them to have regular eye examinations.

Transitions Optical spokesperson Denis Fisk said with more than one million patient consultations every year for skin cancer, the opportunity exists for eye care professionals to leverage the UV awareness campaign to convey the importance of UV protection for eyes and regular eye examinations with their patients ahead of summer.

Information about how eye care professionals can tie into the campaign is available online at www.optometrists.asn.au/uv.
