The summer holidays have now started and whether you are enjoying the sun at home or jet setting to some beautiful destination there is one key item that you should have to hand at all times, Sun glasses. So to make sure your eyes are properly protected this summer enter the competition below to win an amazing voucher worth £150 to spend on sunglasses in any Specsavers store.



A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to interview one of the opticians from London’s Sheperd’s Bush Specsavers and find out all about the importnace of wearing sunglasses, I even got to ask them for some top tips, here is what they had to say….

Why is it so important to wear sunglasses?

Sun exposure can cause avoidable macular damage which is why sunglasses are such an important weapon when it comes to protecting vision. Short term exposure to UV rays can cause photo keratitis, painful inflammation on the front of the eye.

What should a person look for when choosing a pair of sunglasses?

Not all sunglasses offer adequate protection – check that yours bear the CE kite mark and are UV400 effective. It is also important to chose a style that suits your face and a pair that you feel comfortable wearing.

Do you have any other tips?

*   Wear your sunglasses even on days with cloud and sun, as UV rays penetrate cloud

*   Try to avoid the sun between 10am and 2pm, when UV rays are most intense

*   Wear big lenses for even more protection

*   Invest in photochromic lenses that instantly adapt to light changes, darkening in bright light

*   Wear sunglasses over your contact lenses as their UV protection does not cover the whole of your eye
*   Ensure that your sunglasses fit properly

*   If you are going on holiday and have prescription sunglasses, take your optician’s phone number with you. If your sunglasses break, your optician can send your prescription to an optician near you so you can get new lenses.

    • You clearly live somewhere warmer than me. It looks like it could pour down at any moment here today but the weather forcast says it will warm up by the end of the week so my fingers are firmly crossed.

  1. We will be spending this Summer at home mainly but having lots of exciting days out and some nice family BBQ’s too!

  2. At home this summer as my husband is having major surgery. As soon as he gets the all clear to fly, we can plan an escape to the sun this winter.

  3. We are having a “Staycation” this summer to enjoy all this sunshine! Plus avoids travelling too far with the newest member of our growing family!

  4. We have no plans on going on holiday this year. I will be spending my summer mostly in parks and gardens. 🙂

  5. We can’t go away this summer. My DH is self employed and can only take a week in August which is when our beautiful Bedlington Terrier, Bonnie is due to have her first litter of pups!

  6. We are hoping to take the kids to Legoland in Windsor, then a trip to london to make the most of our Merlin Passes.

  7. I’ll be relaxing in the scorching hot and luscious landscape of…my own back garden, enjoying a gloriously warm and not often-repeated British summer! 😉

  8. we have just come back from our family holiday been to Greece,got a couple of days to the coast planned during the kids holidays

  9. We’re doing a staycation this summer. Still going to cost a fortune to keep the kids entertained for six weeks, but at least it’ll be cheaper than galavanting off in search of the sun. (and in any case, I think we’ve had all the sun we need this summer already anyway)

  10. Hi, we will be spending time at home in Merseyside. But have been for a week in Bognor Regis earlier this month. Took advantage of the sunshine, yey 🙂

  11. The summer itself I’m spending home. I’ve lost my job a month ago, so looking for a new one atm. Hopefully will find it soon and could be able to go for a weeks holiday in autumn. Thank God, there are hot countries 🙂

  12. I have a one year old son and I’m pregnant again so I am going to spend the summer with my feet up and my hands full!!! so exciting, what a generous giveaway! this pregnancy has ruined my vision and really need new lenses also some sun glasses!! thanks so much for the chance! – Courtney xoxo

  13. Great tips! I try not to forget my case too as I often put them somewhere that I think is safe and then take them out later and they’re crushed! Especially in a suitcase. I’m planning to get some new ones for my honeymoon, we’re going on safari so I will definitely need some.

  14. We will be staying at home this summer holiday but living in Cornwall there is plenty of opportunity to visit the beaches with the kids.

  15. We’re staying home this summer as I’m expecting and didn’t fancy too much heat. Still, we’ve had the high temperatures here anyway!

  16. We’re off to Rome in August for a family holiday. We haven’t been to Italy before so we’re very excited about it!

  17. I’ll be spending summer at home, but our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter are coming to spend a week with us.
