Student Bowl sets stylish sights on Sunglass record

Sunglasses and the Varilux Optometry Student Bowl — a winning combination and a strong contender for a Guinness World Record.

Optometry Cares®-The AOA Foundation, The Vision Council, The American Optometric Student Association and Essilor of America are aiming to make history at this year’s Optometry’s Meeting® in Seattle, Washington, by breaking a Guinness World Record™ for “the most people wearing sunglasses in the dark.” The event will be held Thursday, June 25, during the 24th Annual Varilux® Optometry Student Bowl™.

“We are holding this event, in part, to celebrate ‘National Sunglasses Day,’ June 27, and to bring awareness to the dangers of UV light on the visual system,” said Mike Daley, CEO of The Vision Council and board member of Optometry Cares.

So grab a friend, pick up a pair of sunglasses and help raise awareness for the importance of eye and vision care!
