Sunglasses

Whether they want bright, colourful sunglasses or subtler sunglasses our range of children’s sunglasses has something to suit your child and our sunglasses are tough enough to withstand even the wildest of playground adventures. Kids and teens especially, are very conscious of how they look, which is why we give them such a wide choice of attractive and fashionable sunglasses.

Children under age 10 are at a high risk for skin and eye damage from UVR. The skin on their eyelids and around their eyes is more delicate and vulnerable than adult skin. “And until about age 10, the lens of a child’s eye is clear, allowing greater solar penetration and thus greater UVR-induced ocular changes,” explains Adelaide A. Hebert, MD, professor and vice chair of dermatology, University of Houston. “After that, the lens starts to become more opaque, providing better protection.”

UVR exposure causes 90 percent of all skin cancers. In addition, retinal exposure to UVR is associated with cataracts and macular degeneration, both causes of vision impairment. UVR damage builds over time, so the sooner you start protecting your children’s eyes from the sun, the lower their risk will be of ever developing future eye problems. If they require prescription glasses, they should also wear prescription sunglasses.

We offer lots of different types and brands of contact lenses and picking one will depend on your lifestyle and prescription. But you won’t have to do it alone - our qualified opticians are on hand to help you find the right type of lens for you.
