A constant stream of advertising has made us increasingly aware of the effects of the sun on our skin and the massive range of products available to protect it. As a nation we spend millions of pounds a year to protect our skin and keep us looking young.
Protecting your eyes is equally important, the UV in the suns rays also has an aging effect on the eye, the effects of which are generally invisible to us until after the damage has been done. Sunglasses have recently become very much the fashion accessory of the rich and famous but more of us should follow their example invest in a quality pair of sunspecs.
There is a vast range of styles and colours available, many designed with sports in mind to give protection and with great emphasis on comfort and fit where others are styled to suit the latest fashions and wouldn’t look out of place in Hello magazine.
Sunspecs are also especially important to drivers, if you use your spectacles to drive it is important that you should also have an up to date pair of prescription sunglasses to keep you safe on the road.
