Make the most of Winter Sun

Sunglasses reduce the amount of light reaching the eye and protect our most valued asset from damaging ultra- violet radiation (UV) which is a growing environmental hazard. Without the all-important UV protection, you could be increasing the risk of unsightly crows’ feet, snow blindness, cataracts and retinal damage. Before buying any sunglasses it’s important to check for the British Standard label which shows that they filter out the harmful UV rays.
