With the warm weather (hopefully!) approaching, Kam Sing, store director at Specsavers in Dartford, and the team are reminding their customers about the importance of protecting their eyes from the sun.
How to protect your eyes from the sun
'Invest in sunglasses that bear the CE kite mark and offers 99-100 per cent UV protection which is indicated on labelling with the mark UV-400.
'Be aware that the price, darkness and tint of the sunglasses do not necessarily have a bearing on the strength of the protection offered and that labels should always be checked.'
Wear them at all times
'Even if it’s clouding over, UV rays can still be harmful so keep wearing your sunglasses in these conditions as well.'
Fashion is also important
'We make sure we stock a wide range of designer prescription sunglasses for all tastes and age ranges.
'Our designer ranges include the brands Kylie Minogue, French Connection, Boss Orange, Balmain, Red or Dead, Tommy Hilfiger, Karen Millen and many more. These can be bought with or without prescription lenses, and can be worn with contact lenses.
