Make eyecare your New Year’s resolution

The start of a new year is a great time to think about how you can make changes that will improve your life. So, if you are thinking about the sort of resolution to make for 2022, then we recommend taking the time to focus on your eye health and really make a positive difference. 

Here are some suggestions for eye-related resolutions for the coming year. 

Keep your eyes in check 

Having a regular eye test – usually every couple of years for most adults – is an important part of keeping your vision in check. So, if you are due a check-up please do get in touch to book your next appointment.  

It is definitely worth considering our enhanced examination which allows us to carry out a more in-depth examination with a full explanation when it comes to any issues. 

If you aren’t yet due your usual eye test but spot a significant change to your sight or you are worried about your vision, please do book in as soon as possible rather than wait for your next appointment. Find out more about some common tell-tale signs that you need your eyes checked in our recent blog about Extended Eye Tests.

Give your eyes a rest 

If you are a regular screen user, then the easiest eye-related resolution that will make a real difference is to remember to give your eyes a break. As a rule, every 20 minutes look at something at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds. And don’t forget to blink! Research has shown that screen users tend to blink less which can lead to dry and itchy eyes.

Stop losing your glasses! 

There’s nothing more annoying than not being able to find your glasses when you need them. But as most part time specs wearers will have found over time, it is oh-so easy to forget where you have left them! If your resolution is to stop losing your glasses check out our recent blog for some helpful hints.  Or if this feels like a bit of a stretch, why not resolve to invest in a spare pair and increase your chances of being able to find at least one set of specs! If you would like a straight duplicate of a recent order, or if you would like a new style and your prescription is up to date, call us to arrange a dispensing appointment. 

Look after your specs 

If you are a glasses-wearer why not resolve to show a little love to your specs this year? Once you have invested in the perfect pair it doesn’t take a lot to keep them in mint condition. Check out our recent blog for some hints and tips on glasses care


Why not make it your resolution to invest in a good pair of sunglasses, and wear them throughout the year, not just in summer? There are all–year-round benefits to wearing sunglasses which will help to keep your vision at optimal level. Wearing sunglasses helps protect your eyes against the sun’s Ultra-Violet rays which are present all year round. Just like skin your eyes are sensitive to UV rays and it is possible for them to be damaged by the sun. Find out more in our recent blog, benefits of sunglasses.  Plus, you can check out our wide range on sunglasses online. 


  • Please note, this year we will be closed between Christmas and New Year, giving our team a well-earned break after what has been an extremely challenging 22 months. We will be here right up to 1pm on Christmas Eve, reopening at 9am on Tuesday 4 January.
