I expect many of you enjoyed the recent Winter Olympics and the current Paralympics and you may even be looking forward to hitting the ski slopes yourselves.
A word of warning before you do though.  It is often easy to forget the risks associated with UV light and snow.

When UV rays are reflected from snow they can be considerably more powerful than when reflected from other surfaces so extra care needs to be taken.

I suspect many of you will be thinking about making improvements to your lifestyle for 2018.  Why not get a new look, have the freedom to be more active or improve your overall vision by starting to wear contact lenses.

Personally I have always thought that tinted sunglasses were a bit of an affectation but I recently read an article which has changed my mind.

The tint on sunglasses is known as the base tint and is what you see from the inside of the lens. The most common tints are grey and green as they offer the most neutral view.  However, other colours can provide more contrast, which is key for certain sports.

I am pleased to say that over the years technological advances in optometry have enabled opticians to detect a wide range of eye conditions through routine eye examinations alone.  As with many health problems early detection is the key to a speedy solution.
