Great savings on eye vitamins as we extend our MacuShield offer

We are delighted to announce that we have extended our MacuShield 3 for 2 offer, helping you to look after your eyes for less.  We often take the work our eyes do for granted but as one of our most vital organs, they need a little TLC - such as protection from the sun and eye vitamins - to ensure they can carry on doing their job properly.

Let’s look at some of the reasons why you need an eye supplement this winter and then explain exactly how our MacuShield offer works.

How does winter impact eye health?

You might think those crisp, dry winter days are a welcome sight after a damp autumn, but the cold air can dehydrate your eyes and cause irritation.  The cold winter air doesn’t contain enough moisture to stop your eyes from drying out, and in particularly harsh climates can cause redness, tenderness and inflammation.

The winter sun can also be problematic, as spending a lot of time outdoors at this time of year leaves your eyes exposed to UV radiation - particularly if the rays are reflecting off the bright white snow.

Coming inside won’t necessarily improve things for your eyes, as the constant need for central heating to keep our homes warm, gives off warm air which can dry the eyes and circulate bacteria.


What you can do to look after your eyes this winter

The good news is that there are several simple things you can do to keep your peepers in tip top condition this winter, including:

  • Regulate your temperature indoors - setting your central heating so it is not too hot.
  • Keep blinking to ensure your eyes stay hydrated and if you are worried about dry eyes - try a dry eye supplement.
  • Drink plenty of water - the recommended intake is around 6-8 glasses of water per day to keep your eyes and the rest of your body hydrated.
  • Eat a diet rich in vitamins and minerals and take eye vitamins to ensure your eyes benefit from the eye-friendly Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
  • Wear high quality sunglasses to protect your eyes from damaging UV rays - just because you can’t see the sun blaring as it is in summer, doesn’t mean it’s ultraviolet rays are any less harmful.
