The summer months are slowly but surely on their way, so what better way to encourage sun-seekers to protect their vision than with a brainteaser with an eye-testing twist?

With the sun fighting to get through the clouds, we’ve come up with this eye-boggling brain teaser that asks challengers to spot the sun-seeker that isn’t wearing sunglasses, amongst all the other beach revellers.

Don’t let the confusing elements throw you off, such as parachuters, surfers, cyclists and those enjoying a beverage in the sunshine. Can you spot the sun-seeker without sunglasses yet?

healthy vision month - spot the sun-seeker without glasses

May is internationally known as Healthy Vision Month we decided to create this puzzle to illustrate how important it is for us all to protect our eyes and keep our vision healthy,especially during the upcoming summer months.

We often take our eyes for granted, but they are an essential part of our overall health and one of the most important out of all of our senses. Sunglasses are vital to protecting our eyes from UV rays because they absorb and reflect harmful light, all whilst stopping us from squinting and improving the overall look of our eyes; sunglasses prevent ageing to our eyes and keep them bright, white and youthful!

If you haven’t spotted the beach-goer without sunglasses, here’s the answer:
