The Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB) has recently released data that shows nearly half of all cases of sight loss are preventable.

It’s a stat that the team at Specsavers Hatfield would like to change and they have one tip for us all this summer – wear sunglasses to keep your eyes healthy.

A word from the store director

‘Wearing sunglasses is really important in protecting your eyes. Think of them as sun cream for your sight’, explains Hatfield Store director, Penny Thakrar.

‘The harmful rays in sunlight can increase your risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. So to keep your eyes healthy, keep them covered this summer.’
