Specsavers Rustington in The Street is calling on all their customers to take care of their eye health this summer by wearing sunglasses.

Harmful rays from the sun can damage your eyes and can increase your risk of suffering from age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

A word from the store director

David Durick, store director in Rustington, said: ‘According to the Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB), nearly half of all cases of sight loss are preventable.

‘That is a shocking statistic, so if wearing sunglasses can do anything to reduce your risk of sight loss it has to be worth a go.’
