The Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB) has recently released data that shows nearly half of all cases of sight loss are preventable.

It’s a stat that the team at Specsavers Chesham are not happy with and they have one tip for us all this summer – wear sunglasses to keep your eyes healthy.

A word from the store director

Heena Thaker, store director in Chesham, explains: ‘Wearing sunglasses is really important in protecting your eyes. Think of them as sun cream for your sight.

‘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.’
