Winter UV & Your Eyes

The importance of protecting your eyes over the Winter months is not always known to many on the Gold Coast. Our optometrist, Andrew Bowden spoke to Channel 7 news about how the UV light can affect your eyes.

Wear Those Sunnies in Winter

One of the key points Andrew made was to wear your sunglasses, even in winter. In winter, the angle of the sun comes down low and can get in and behind the eyes a bit more. It is also important for children to wear sunglasses.
