No need to squint

Protecting our skin and hair from the sun and UV light is a well-known beauty fact, but, have you ever considered what damage you might be doing to your eyes?

Mr Milind Pande a surgeon from the Vision Surgery and Research Centre, Yorkshire, warns:

“The effects of UV radiation are cumulative and may increase the chance of developing eye problems with too much exposure to UV rays, including cataracts, lens clouding, growths and burned eye. He said that clinics are seeing a rise in the number of older adults being treated for eye-related problems caused by too much exposure to UV rays”.*

So if you like to sunbathe but, are worried about damage to your eyes and don’t like the glare when resting, then you need Occles Travel Eyewear. Providing total blackout and eye protection from harmful UV rays,light, and sunlight,

The inspiration for Occles Travel Eyewear came when the two Scottish entrepreneurs Lynne and Hugh, were lying on a beach in Greece, unable to sleep due to the bright sunlight penetrating their eyes through their sunglasses. Having tried various items to block out the light, voila, they thought up and designed Occles Travel Eyewear. Now everyone can protect their eyes anytime from light pollution, UV and sunlight on the beach or by the pool.
