The team at Specsavers in Bracknell wants to remind customers to protect eyes from harmful UV rays this summer.

Great selection of sunglasses in store
Superior protection is a guarantee at Specsavers!  While style is key, protection is paramount with many customers being unaware that UV rays can cause a whole host of issues for our eyes.

Says store director Gary Parker: ‘Too much exposure to UV rays can cause real upset for the eyes, be it irritation but in more extreme cases,  cancer of the cornea, age related macular degeneration, cataracts and even blindness.'

What to look for with your sunglasses?
To be sure eyes are getting the care they need, be sure that sunglasses bear the CE kite mark and offer 99-100 per cent UV protection which is indicated on labelling with the mark UV-400.

Price, darkness and tint of the sunglasses will not always indicate superior protection, so for assurance, pop into the Bracknell store to check out their great ranges.
