It is particularly important that people who will be spending a lot of time in the sun this summer take precautions to safeguard their vision, it has been claimed.

According to fitsugar.com, the health and wellbeing advice site, a combination of products can help to keep people's eyesight safe during the sunnier months, with UV sunglasses one option people can adopt.

"They not only protect your eyes from damaging rays, but sunglasses also prevent debris from blowing into your eyes. I also found wearing sunglasses prevents dry eyes caused by warm wind," the source noted.

It added that UV-blocking contact lenses also provide excellent additional protection, as class 1 lenses can block up to 96 per cent of UVA rays and 100 per cent of UVB rays emitted by the sun.

Recently, Bebe Teo, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Singapore's general manager and regional key account director, unveiled the 1-Day Acuvue Define Range, which she claimed can protect against the sun's harmful UV rays.
