It was a huge day for eye health awareness.

June 27 was National Sunglasses Day — but if you use Facebook or Twitter, you probably already knew that.

The annual celebration of shades was a huge deal on social media, where people used the hashtags #NationalSunglassesDay and #SunglassSelfie.

This year's celebration marked the fourth consecutive year that The Vision Council has promoted the importance of UV-protective eyewear through National Sunglasses Day. 

Here are a few of the cool posts we saw:

Do you agree?


USA Today encouraged its Facebook fans to watch out for UV rays.

Seriously, you don't.

Stay cool until the next National Sunglasses Day!
