Although it is more obvious to protect your eyes in the summer from the glaring hot sun, it is just as important to look after your eyes in the winter – here are some top tips to take care of your vision this season.

  1. Whether you’re hitting the slopes or staying at home, sunglasses that block 99-100% of UV rays are essential to protect your eyes from sunburn and temporary vision damage. The sun doesn’t have to be hot to harm your eyes.
  2. Protect your face and eyes from cold winds by wearing brimmed hats, hoods or even wraparound sunglasses to prevent your tear film evaporating resulting in irritated, dry and scratchy eyes.
  3. Colds and flu are rife this time of year, so be sure to wash your hands regularly before touching your eyes to reduce the risk of cross infection.
  4. Central heating and car heating dry the air around you, which can often leave your eyes dry and irritable. Invest in a humidifier or eye drops to counteract this common problem.
  5. Protect your eyes from the inside out and indulge in winter warming veg that provides valuable nutrition for the eyes. Kale, spinach and carrots are the ideal candidates.
