CHESAPEAKE, Va. -
Sun's out, shades out. Summer is officially just getting started and that means more time under the sun than any other time of the year... and plenty of opportunity for sunlight and ultraviolet rays to get into your eyes.
"Sunglasses need to be considered sunscreen for the eyes," said Dr. Lisa Gontarek, who owns Gontarek Eye Care on Battlefield Boulevard in Chesapeake.
Over her 24-year career as an optometrist, Dr. Gontarek says she's seen plenty of sun-related damage to eyes.
