Adults may be ‘more susceptible’ to conjunctivitis in winter – expert explains why


Furthermore, there is also the impact of other, rarer, weather events to consider. While snow hasn’t hit most parts of the UK in great quantity for a while, it remains a possibility.

Shelton has tips on how to manage rain, snow, and ice glare: “During autumn and winter, the sun is very low in the sky at peak times, including when people are driving to work or taking children to and from school. The low sun combined with the excess rain we get in autumn, and then snow and ice in winter, can cause a reflective glare or ‘dazzle’ that can be damaging to the eyes.

“During these times it’s important to take steps to look after the health of the eyes. Sunglasses aren’t just for summer, they’re a necessary accessory in winter too, so always keep a pair handy and consider purchasing a pair with polarised lenses, which reduce the amount of sunlight that enter the eye.

“Glasses wearers should consider adding an anti-reflective coating, or use specialist lenses which are designed to cope with the challenges autumn and winter can present.”
