By Michelle Sutton 2 years ago 1824 Views No comments

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 eyes. 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 RRP (£22.00). Providing total blackout and eye protection from harmful UV rays, light, and sunlight, enabling complete rest to the eyes. They are CE Accredited for UV Protection, so if you’re finding the hot sun’s and sands glare too much or trying to get some well earned rest on the beach with tired overworked eyes, or even if you are a hay fever sufferer then why not try Occles. They will make a difference to your holiday rest and mediation.

Light, durable, strong and bridge-less so 
tan lines will be minimised, they are comfortable to wear, with an 
adjustable fit for a range of head sizes.

Plus they are ideal to wear on the plane too, so if you’re on a long haul flight pop them on and get a great nights rest. The 21st century design focuses on creating the perfect comfortable sleep-mask for long haul flights. CNN recently featured them as the hottest new accessories for traveller this year 2016.**

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 though 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.


A bonus is that Occles, are ideal for those suffering from light pollution in bedrooms, hotel rooms or anywhere light infiltrates from street lights causing lack of sleep. Great for shift workers, migraine, dry eye and hay fever sufferers and those tormented by light pollution. Superb for those who are mediating keeping visual distractions away.

Occles originally worked with Abertay University Scotland to develop the brand for the marketplace both in UK and abroad. Abertay's final report identified that awareness of UV damage and eye health is indeed an area requiring greater education, in order to bring it on to a par with our knowledge of protecting our skin whilst outdoors. As Occles Travel Eyewear completely blocks off all light and has been certified to block UV rays, wearing them will contribute to and promote resting as well as looking after the eyes outdoors and during flights.
