Protect your eyes this summer - get the right sunglasses for you and your lifestyle from JBO Opticians in Shropshire.

Optometrist Jane at JBO Opticians has some advice about taking care of your eyes this summer (assuming there will be one!)

The weather starts to improve and it feels great to be out and about again after a long winter, but please take care to ensure you are properly protected from the sunshine.

As an eye care specialist, I’m obviously not just talking about wearing a decent sun cream, though of course, this is really important, but the need to have a good pair of sunglasses too. Extended exposure to UV rays can damage your eyes, and has been linked to a number of problems, including cataracts and macular degeneration, which is why proper UV protection is essential. I’m sure we are all hoping for some great weather, and we all want to make the most of it. But please bear in mind a few things to ensure your summer’s as safe as it is enjoyable:

Make sure your children have proper sunglasses too. They are even more at risk, as they tend to spend a lot more time outside than adults.
If you have a really active lifestyle, please speak to us about the specialist equipment we have to help you enjoy sports in the sun.
Remember to wear sunglasses even when you’re in the shade. Although reduced, your eyes will still be exposed to UV rays reflected from buildings, roads and other surfaces.
Even if your contact lenses block UV rays, you still need sunglasses, as the only the part of your eye under the lens will be shielded. Wearing sunglasses protects the whole of your eye, as well as the delicate
skin around it.

JBO Opticians have an extensive range of sunglasses - which can be fitted with prescription lenses - and photochromic lenses, which change according to the light and can be worn inside and out.
