Sun Protection Advice from Dr. First

In this video Vermont Children’s Hospital pediatrician Dr. Lewis First provides simple common sense advice for protecting your children from the damaging effects of the sun’s rays. Diligent use of sunscreen along with sunglasses for the whole family is all you need to keep your children safe from sun damage.

According to Dr. First, children under the age of ten are most susceptible to damage to the back of the eye.
