Summer is almost here and while warmer days are welcomed by many, for others the hot weather brings with it dry eyes—a condition that can strike anyone.

Dry eye syndrome is a common condition that can be exacerbated in summer; just like our bodies, our eyes (specifically, the cornea) can become dehydrated.

A word from the store director

Kam Singh, store director at Specsavers in Dartford, says: ‘Eye drops are one of the best treatments for dry eyes. A simple and cheap one is hypermellose, but it contains preservative that you can be sensitive to and is watery and doesn't stay in the eye for very long.

‘If you suspect you might be affected by dry eyes, pop in store for a quick check-up and we’ll give you the best treatment for you.’
