Stress can affect our sight and hearing in a number of ways. Here’s what to look out for and how to keep your symptoms under control.

Stress can get the better of all of us from time to time – particularly over the last year or so. In fact, research shows that 65% of people in the UK have felt more stressed since lockdown restrictions began last March[1].

While we often talk about the impact stress has on our mental health, the toll it takes on our physical health can be overlooked. Here, we take a look at the ways stress can impact your sight and hearing.

If you’d like more advice on how to protect your vision and hearing from stress, or you’d like to book an eye or hearing test, just get in touch with your local Specsavers store.

If you’re struggling to cope with the effects of stress, reach out to a mental health charity, which can provide guidance and support.
