Even in the midst of winter and cold weather, eyes and skin are still at risk of UV damage.

While the majority of those surveyed agreed it is important to protect your eyes from UV radiation, a fifth said they did not know how to do this.

However, 13 per cent said they do not see protecting their eyes as a priority and one in 20 said they "do not care".

According to the WHO, ~20% of all cataracts are caused or worsened by UV radiation so it's a real issue!
