Having to wear glasses all the time is a pain! I know, I've been wearing them for over 50 years. There are certain circumstances when they really let you down. For example when you arrive in a shop in winter time and the lenses fog up. Or when you drop them accidentally on the ground. Why do they always land face down and scratch the lenses!

We have selected some of the most useful accessories for making life with glasses that bit easier...

I suffer from dry eyes. All the time. My eyes are also sensitive to the sun's glare, to wind, sand, dust and pollen.

That's why I wore my trusted Ziena Kai glasses on the beach at Instow in North Devon last weekend.

I used to enjoy gardening in June. That's until I started suffering from hay fever.

When I was cutting the grass or putting the grass cuttings on the compost heap, my eyes got so itchy I had to stop and go inside.
