Mild Conjunctivitis in my eyes

I work in the outdoors a lot and because of dust, rain and the rest of the elements my eyes get irritated a lot and it is really depressing.

Can anyone recommend some all weather glasses that will give me some protection?

    Look in a cycling shop for some cycling glasses? 
    All shades from very dark to clear, some even have multiple lenses for different conditions. Budget options right up to super swanky Oakleys!
    How to find a dentist.
    1. Get recommendations from friends/family/neighbours/etc.
    2. Once you have a short-list, VISIT the practices - dont just phone. Go on the pretext of getting a Practice Leaflet.
    3. Assess the helpfulness of the staff and the level of the facilities.
    4. Only book initial appointment when you find a place you are happy with.
  • Have a look at work mans stuff screwfix etal have massive ranges with everything from safety rated glasses to goggles and they cost way way less than sport glasses but amazingly look very very similar!

    Another option I'd look at before cycling stuff is air soft/paintball/tactical/shooting ranges. I had a pair of paintball safety rated glasses that had 4 different interchangeable coloured lenses for different lighting that also could be converted into goggles. I preferred the goggles for cycling as they didn't steam up and gave me an almost zero blind spot. Handy though as you un-clip the google strap take out the foam rim insert plug in the arms and they actually looked quite decent as ordinary although a bit sporty sunglasses.
