The kids need sunwear too! While we always think about adults in sunwear, we forget the kids need the most protection for there delicate eyes. Kids eyewear has to be durable and child friendly. The one thing that I have discovered is that if a kid does not like their glasses they will not wear them. You will definitely find there glasses all over the house instead of on their faces if you choose eyewear that they do not like. I have seen a lot of broken eyewear in my day as an optician and I recommend to all my parents to let your child choose what they like as far as styling. Now parents you do have to take over when it comes to the price of the glasses, lets not get them too spoiled! Most children eyewear however, is very affordable and most come with warranties or there are warranties that you can purchase separately. As I was browsing online I ran across some cut pictures of kids sporting there sun eyewear. It proves that even babies have style!
So why is sun eyewear so important for kids? Well studies have shown that from birth to age 18 we get 80 of our exposure to Ultra-violent rays. Excessive exposure to these rays have been linked to cataracts and other eye problems. So it is very important to have uv protection in your sunwear. Most sunglasses that have UV protection are labeled if you are not sure some optical stores have machines that can tell u if UV protection is on your eyewear. If you have not considered getting your child sunglasses or glasses that have photocrhomatic lens, consider this and help protect your childs eyes for there future. They will thank you later!
