Locals in Coatbridge are being offered top tips for selecting sunglasses this summer.The team at Specsavers in the town is encouraging customers to ensure they invest in appropriate glasses to protect their eyes from harmful UV rays.

A word of advice from the store director

Andrew McGonagle, store director at Specsavers in Coatbridge, said: ‘UV rays can be very damaging to your eyes – causing irritation and, in extreme cases, serious damage.

We therefore encourage customers to choose sunglasses which bear the CE kite mark, shown by a label with the mark UV 400.

It’s great to be able to enjoy the sun while it lasts, but we aim to make sure locals in Coatbridge do so safely.’
