NEW YORK—Although there’s still about a month until the official start of summer, there’s no denying that many of us are already thinking about sunny days by the beach or the pool, weekend trips away, ice cream and all of the other unique joys summer has to offer. As we wait for hot weather to fully arrive, there’s no better time than now to remind patients and clients just how important UV protection is—the warm weather and excitement for summer vacations might just make your patients more interested in picking up a new pair of sunglasses in the next few weeks.

This week, we’re taking a look at how some indies are spotlighting their sunwear collections now that the weather is warming up and patients are heading out into the great outdoors.
