An Eye On Vision Issues
Volume 6, Issue 3 Week of June 17th to June 23rd
The first day of summer is approaching fast. The temperatures in Illinois have reached the 90’s. If you live in an area that has temperature in the 90’s remember to always drink lots of water and try to stay cool. If in the bright sunlight, wear a brimmed hat and sunglasses to protect your eyes. If working in the heat dress in light colors to reflect the heat (do not wear dark or black colors). Be safe and enjoy the summertime!
