Harmful rays from the sun can do serious damage your eyes, by increasing the risk of diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts.

Because of this, the team at Welwyn Garden city are encouraging their customers to take care of their eye health this summer by popping on a pair of sunglasses.

A word from the store director

Thomas Armstrong, store director at Welwyn Garden City 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.’
