An Eye on Vision Issues
Volume 5 Issue 4 Week of May 27 to June 2
Summer temperatures arrived early in Illinois. The past two days the temperature reached the mid 90’s. Remember enjoy the summer days but be safe – protect yourself from sunburn (most dangerous times of the day for skin damage – 10 am to 2 pm) and hydrate by drinking lots of fluids – especially water. Enjoy going to the beach, pool, or whatever activity you do during the summer.
