In an era when UV light is becoming more prevalent in our environment, it’s critical to get the exposure you need, according to Dr. Brian Smith, a pediatric ophthalmologist and senior scientist at the American Society for Uveitis.
Smith said you need to get as much UV exposure as possible.
He recommends getting a UV lamp or UV lamp accessory for kids as well.
“When you see a kid in the hospital, they will see that they’re not seeing the sun, they’re seeing a light that is not normal for them,” Smith said.
This light is actually ultraviolet light.
You can actually get that by going outside in a tanning bed or tanning chair and putting on a sunblock, Smith said, adding that kids and adults should get sunscreen, sunglasses and a long sleeve shirt.
We don’t want to get our kids sunburned.
It is not acceptable for us to have to be outside all day and still not be able to work,” Smith added.
The American UVO Institute estimates that up to one in six Americans have been exposed to UV light in their lifetime.
A UV light lamp, like one that’s part of the SunSpot UVB system, is the most effective way to get UV exposure, said Mark Buehler, the UVO president.
In some cases, a sunbed or tannery chair may be more appropriate for younger children, like toddlers, Buehl said.”
If they’re wearing sunscreen, you want them to put it on at least a little bit and keep it in.””
They need to feel the sun’s rays hitting them.
If they’re wearing sunscreen, you want them to put it on at least a little bit and keep it in.”
You can also take advantage of the sunburn prevention techniques offered by some companies like SunStar, SunGem and SunStar Plus.
SunGem, for example, recommends putting a layer of sunscreen over your face and a tanner’s face after using the sunblock.
SunStar Plus is a brand that is popular with children because it uses UV-blocking products and UV filters to prevent the sun from penetrating the skin, Bühl said, but SunStar has been accused of making its products more expensive.
But Buehlsons firm recommends the SunStar products for kids because they are easier to find and are much more durable than products from SunStar.
Buehler said his company uses the SunGems sunblocks, which are made of an ultra-fine ceramic material that absorbs the sun and UV rays.
Once your skin gets a tan, the sunspot protection can protect your skin from UV rays for up to three days.
As for the best way to protect your eyes, Buhler said kids should be careful.
Make sure you wear sunscreen.
Buehsons recommended putting sunscreen on their face and in their hair as well, but not under their eyes.
And be careful when you’re out and about, especially at night, he said.
