With one in four people in the UK affected by hayfever*, Specsavers Leeds, Albion Street, is urging customers to visit instore to recieve expert adivce on how to best look after their eyes this Spring.

Combating hayfever

If you wear glasses or contacts, itchy, burning and watery eyes can be particularly irritatating and disruptive. Experts recommend that those who wear glasses should consider switching to a wraparound version of their specs to help keep the pollen away from the eyes. It's recommended that contact lens wearers switch to daily disposables to combat itching but if unsucessful, should also consider wearing a wraparound version of specs.

A word from the Store Director

Mark Richardson at Leeds Specsavers, comments: “Hayfever and allergies can often be dismissed as a trivial problem. This shouldn’t be the case, allergies can not only disturb sleep, they also affect concentration and cause people to miss school or work.

“We want our local residents to know that we are on hand to help this hayfever season. I would urge anyone seeking advice to visit us here at Leeds Specsavers and we will do our very best to assist them.”
