With the cold and snowy weather setting in in Chatham, the team is advising residents on how to protect their eyes from the effects of the cold weather.
The most important thing to do – and this might shock you – is to try to reduce the setting on your central heating and avoid sitting in direct heat, such as gas or electric heaters.
In fact, the heat can leave your eyes feeling dry and irritated. To avoid this, it’s also important to drink water and to use eye drops, to add extra lubrication to dry eyes.
