ALEXANDRIA, Va.—National Sunglasses Day—a commemorative date celebrating the importance of wearing ultraviolet (UV) protective sunwear and eyewear—is right around the corner, taking place on June 27. The annual celebration serves as a reminder that sunglasses are a major health necessity and spreads the word that sunglasses and other UV-protective eyewear are key to protecting long-term eye health.
