Specsavers in Gravesend is keen to remind its customers and local community that they are available to help with eye health conditions such as dry eyes, in addition to conducting eye tests.

A word from the store director  

Dominic Candon, store director at Specsavers in Gravesend, says: ‘Reducing the setting on your central heating, avoiding car heaters, especially at face level, and sitting away from direct heat such as gas or electric heaters are just a few ways of reducing the irritation of dry eyes this winter.

’The gritty sensation and dryness we sometimes experienced in our eyes during the winter months can also be made worse by dehydration.

‘While we all enjoy a hot drink at this time of year, cut back on the coffee and drink more water. Additionally, using eye drops can add extra lubrication to dry eyes.’
