Protect your Child's eye sight this summer with Specsavers Islington

The team at Specsavers Islington are highlighting the importance of protecting children’s eyes from the summer sun.

Store director, Bansi Sagar said: ‘More UV radiation is able to pass through a child’s retina due to the natural lens in their eyes being clearer than adults.

Children are more likely to develop potentially sight-threatening conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, in later life, as a result of over-exposure to UV rays from a young age.

Our professional team is on hand to offer help and advice, and we have an extensive range of kids’ sunglasses on offer, including free trivex lenses, so I would urge all parents to think about bringing their kids into store at this vital stage in their development’.
