National Sunglasses Day Photo Contest
As you can only imagine, National Sunglasses Day is one of our favorite holidays at Roshambo! Not only does it let us show off our colorful sunnies and adorable customers, but it also highlights the importance of wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun's harsh ultraviolet (UV) rays!
Pediatric optometrists warn that most of the lifetime ultraviolet (UV) damage done to a person’s eyes occurs during childhood, and the risk for retinal damage from the sun’s rays is greatest in children less than 10 years old. That's why we protect those little peepers with our polarized lenses, which reduce glare and eye strain while still delivering 100% UVA/B/C protection.
NATIONAL SUNGLASSES DAY
Brought to life by The Vision Council, the leading trade association for the optical industry, National Sunglasses Day is held annually on June 27. And this year we held an extra special social media photo contest to join along in the celebration!
INSTAGRAM PHOTO CONTEST
We were so excited to see the large turnout for our photo contest, with Instagram photos tagged with #NationalSunglassesDay, #SunglassesSelfie and @roshambobaby.
