While most of us love getting out and about in the sunshine, there is no doubt that the summer can put a bit of a strain on our eyes.

Fortunately, the eye experts at Specsavers Edmonton Green in North Mall, Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, are here to help you out.

Get the right sunglasses

Archana Kanabar, store director in Edmonton Green, said: ‘The first thing you need to do to keep your eyes as protected as possible is to make sure that you buy a pair of sunglasses, either prescription or non-prescription, that come with a safe level of UV protection.

‘You will know if they say CE, or are of the right British safety standard. If you need prescription sunglasses, we have a great range available which you should definitely check out.

Keep your hay fever under control

‘Hay fever can make your eyes feel really uncomfortable, but there are things you can do to relieve your symptoms – use eye drops, for example.

‘If your eyes feel like they are struggling this summer, why not pop in and see us to see what we can do to help.’
