Looking after your eyes during winter

Winter can be a challenging time for your eyes, with cold, windy weather and indoor heating leading to dryness and discomfort. At Groovy Glasses, we understand the importance of protecting your eyes during the winter months. That's why we're here to provide you with the guidance and support you need to keep your eyes healthy and comfortable all season long.

Dry eye is a common issue during winter, characterised by symptoms such as itching, burning, and redness. To alleviate these symptoms, it's essential to keep your eyes well-hydrated. Using lubricating eye drops and investing in a humidifier can help maintain moisture levels in the air and prevent dryness.

But dry eye isn't the only concern during winter – exposure to cold, windy weather can also increase your risk of other eye problems, such as conjunctivitis and corneal abrasions. That's why it's essential to protect your eyes with sunglasses or goggles when you're outdoors, especially on windy days.

At Groovy Glasses, we're here to help you navigate the challenges of winter eye care. From advice on managing dry eye symptoms to recommendations for protective eyewear, we're here to ensure that your eyes stay healthy and comfortable all winter long.
