In Autumn and Winter there are many tidying up jobs to do in the garden and if you're a keen gardener, you'll want to get outdoors whenever possible throughout the cooler months.

But while you can wrap up warmly on cold and windy days, there is one important gap in most people's winter gardening clothing and accessories - eye protection.

Yes, what do you do when your eyes water so much outdoors that you can't see what you're doing? Or when they feel sore and uncomfortable when the wind gusts around them?

Excessive eye watering in cold weather affects a majority of older gardeners

Excessive eye watering affects a majority of over 55 year olds, which happens to coincide with the age group that spends more of their time gardening.

This problem is serious enough to discourage many people from getting out in the garden in the cooler months, yet there is normally a simple solution - get a pair of windproof glasses or sunglasses.

You may not have heard of them before, but for some time it has been possible to get sunglasses or glasses with a gasket for effective wind protection. They also protect your glasses from dust and debris while you are doing jobs such as hedge trimming.
