  1. My optometrist recommended special sunglasses for coverage and protection of my eyes—in light of my skin cancer issues. I always wear them when I am outside.

    1. Super smart to do. How are your sunglasses different? Scott moderator

    2. Maui Jim is supposed to have good coverage. I’m not sure how attractive, but I feel like they work. Sunglasses

  2. Those are super cool! I like them. Thanks for sharing. Scott moderator

    1. What about regular checks with an optometrist or ophthalmologist? Does that seem warranted?

      1. I see the optometrist every year, but I don’t know if she’s checking for that. I’ll call today and ask. Thanks.

      2. So glad you promoted me to ask! I go to the optometrist yearly but she does not screen for cancer. Good to know that! I will be setting that up elsewhere ASAP. Knowledge is vital.
