Jim Bivens, Operator of The Islands tanning facility in Pinehurst, NC reminds his guests to wear eye protection with these words: “If you are blind, you can’t see your tan!” One day, a blind person walked into his salon seeking a tan. Bivens now provides his severely vision-impaired tanner with sessions in a voice-activated Sun Angel tanning system, so the guest’s tanning experience is as simple as possible.
Remember, your vision-impaired tanners should also wear eye protection
