Fox News Radio's RACHEL SUTHERLAND (Live from Washington) A federal judge on Wednesday granted John Hinckley Jr., the man who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981, "full-time convalescent leave" from St. Elizabeth's Hospital. The order allows Hinckley, Jr. to live full-time in Williamsburg, Virginia, but still under certain restrictions. Hinckley and his lawyer appeared in federal court in April 2015 and argued that he had been successfully rehabilitated from his illness and that he deserved a release. But prosecutors worried that his family, struggling to pay the bills to treat his illness, could afford to take care of him.

Dr. ALBERT PANG (Optometrist) Not only is it uncomfortable to be stuck in the summer sun without a pair of shades, doctors say it can be dangerous. Optometrists say it's especially important to protect your children's eyes from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Eye doctors we spoke with say remembering your sunglasses is just as important as remembering to put on sunscreen. Dr. Bary Brown at Sunshine Eye Clinic said, "I really think that that's something that we something we forget about. We have sunscreen on, but the eyes are really what we have to protect as well." That's because similar to a sunburn on your skin, the eyes and eyelids can get burned as well. If that happens repeatedly, doctors say you're likely going to have eye issues later in life.
