Sunbed addict eyesight fears

19th October 2009

A woman from Sunderland who used sunbeds without wearing goggles to protect her eyes is concerned that she may go blind.

She has growths on both eyes and needs to have an operation to remove them which may damage her sight. A spokeswoman for the Sunbed Association, said: "Once a customer goes into a cubicle, locks the door and undresses, there is no way the operator can double-check that they have their goggles on."
