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.
