Scientific evidence abounds stating the impact direct sunlight can have in accelerating the aging of the retina and facilitating the development of cataracts. Thus, wearing dark quality lenses with suitable filters that block ultraviolet radiation is paramount in preventing eye diseases. Childhood, particularly school age, is therefore the perfect time to start wearing sunglasses.
When it comes to frames, children models of sunglasses that combine good taste with functionality are a great option. The lenses must be made of organic acrylic or polycarbonate (for lightness and strength) and should have spring rods for greater flexibility during use.
Remember glasses not only protect kid’s eyes of harmful UV rays when the sun is bright but also their sensitive eyelids and part of the face. Moreover, they help kids see better when playing outdoor or at the beach.
