Don't Forget Your Sunglasses
 
 
 
 
"With summer right around the corner and the days getting longer and longer, it is a perfect time to remind everyone to get a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes. Many think of sunglasses as just another fashion accessory or simply a way to "keep the sun out of my eyes" but sunglasses have another often overlooked function, to protect one's eyes from ultraviolet rays."

Wondering Eye
 
 
 
 
"While sitting in anatomy and physiology class, I found myself reminded of how amazing the visual system is and the many complexities and concepts that we have yet to fully understand. It is easy to forget how important our eyes are in every aspect of our lives and how many processes must happen just for us to see."
