It’s a statistic not many of us know - nearly half of all cases of sight loss are preventable, according to the Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB).
And the eye care experts at Specsavers Catford and Lewisham stores have one tip for all of us this summer which will help us keep our eyes healthy – wear sunglasses.
A word from the store director
‘Wearing sunglasses is really important in protecting your eyes. Think of them as sun cream for your sight,’ says Steven Jacobs, store director at both stores.
‘The harmful rays in sunlight can increase your risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. So to keep your eyes healthy, keep them covered this summer.’
Not a bad tip when there are so many great new shades to choose from in-store this season!
