SouthCoast Health: Why you should wear sunglasses

SouthCoast Health: Sunglasses help preserve your vision

Harmful UV rays that can damage your skin also can negatively impact your eyes’ tissue, cornea and lenses.

UV radiation accelerates eye aging, potentially leading to cataracts, corneal damage, and macular degeneration. Each of these conditions alone can lead to vision problems, especially over time.

UV damage is avoidable when you protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses.

SouthCoast Health experts share the benefits of wearing sunglasses here.

SouthCoast Health: Never miss your annual physical

Sunday, May 15th, 2022

SouthCoast Health patient: Never miss your annual physical

SouthCoast Health patient and cancer survivor Bernice Watson (pictured above) has one message for you: Never miss your annual check-up.

This retired school teacher says being diligent about her screenings likely saved her life.

In late 2016, a mammogram revealed a suspicious lump and the subsequent biopsy confirmed the bad news. Watson had Stage 2B breast cancer.

Your annual physical can be among the most important events of your year.

“It’s so important to keep your appointments,” SouthCoast Health patient and cancer survivor Bernice Watson also insists, “and I take every opportunity I can to remind other women to do the same. Early detection was the key to my good outcome.”

Learn more here.

If you’re due for your annual physical, or want to begin a yearly relationship with one of SouthCoast Health’s physicians, visit SouthCoast Health online to schedule an appointment, or call 912-691-3600.
