This time of year can be really tough on your eyes.

The good news is that, according to the experts at Specsavers Rustington, in The Street, there is one easy thing you can do to protect them against the worst the season has to offer.

Remember to blink

Believe it or not, one of the easiest ways to keep your eyes in tip top condition is to remember to blink.

The combination of windy weather outside and central heating inside can play havoc with the moisture level in your eyes – especially if you spend a lot of time every day staring at a screen.

Regular eye tests

David Durick, store director in Rustington, said: ‘Blinking is natural, but it can be easy to forget to do it when we are focused on a screen – or are driving – for a long time. It can help keep your eyes hydrated, so it is really important.

‘The most important thing to do to keep your eyes healthy, however, is to have regular eye tests. So if you have not had one recently, why not book an eye test online today.’
