Rottner, who plans to attend Carolina Country Music Fest (sporting her own pair of protective shades), says sunglasses aren’t the only way to protect yourself from the sun when you’re outdoors. She also suggest wearing a visor-type cap or broad-rimmed hat and staying in the shade.
And she reminds parents that children’s eyes should be protected, too. UV damage is cumulative, so proper protection starting at an early age is key to preventing eye problems down the road.
“Your eyesight is one of the most valuable things you have; it’s important to do all you can to protect it,” says Rottner.
Scheduled from June 6-9, the Carolina Country Music Fest is expected to attract at least 30,000 people to watch more than 30 country artists including Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Randy Houser, Morgan Evans, Travis Denning, Gyth Rigdon, Dee Jay Silver and Alabama.
