Barnet borough eyecare experts are urging customers to be sun-aware this summer season.

The team from Specsavers in the High Street, Barnet is using this month’s annual Sunglasses Day to highlight the important role of the season’s hottest accessory.

Wearing sunglasses which protect against UVA and UVB radiation helps lessen your exposure to harmful rays, which can contribute towards conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration.

A word from the store director

Pragna Raghwani, director of Specsavers in Barnet, said: ‘As eyecare experts we know that their most important function of sunglasses is not as a fashion accessory, but to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays.

'However, here at Specsavers in Barnet, we have a wide range of style sunglasses with tinted prescription lenses and a UV filter you can select from.’
