Do you wear sunblock or sunscreen?
Do you ever think to protect your eyes the same way you protect your skin?
Close your eyes and imagine losing your vision…UV rays cause cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration (retina deterioration) and skin cancer (10% of cancers found near eyes). Bright sunlight can trigger migraines and headaches. Wearing sunglasses can reduce frequency and intensity of pain. We should be protecting our eyes all year round, even on cloudy days.
Vuliwear can help you remember to protect your eyes on a daily basis, by sending alerts to your phone letting you know when UV rays are high.

- 43% don’t know that UV exposure can cause cancer of the eye or eyelid
