Sunglasses aren’t just an eyewear essential for adults. Because children’s bodies are in their development stage, kids are the most affected by the harmful effects of UV rays. Specially because children spend a lot more time outdoors than adults.
As a parent or a sunglasses retailer it is useful that you recognize what makes good children’s sunglasses.
Good children’s sunglasses should block off 100% of the sun’s UV rays. That is because the more kids are exposed to the sun, the more likely they may develop cataracts or other eye related diseases before the age of 18.
Good quality eyewear for kids should be comfortable, but also fun to wear. Because kids are restless and always on the go, children’s sunglasses should be soft and flexible, with rubber frames.Also, unlike adults, children must develop the habit of carrying and wearing a pair of children’s sunglasses, wherever they go.
In terms of colour, there is no direct relationship between the lenses’ tint and protection, however most sunglasses with brown or amber colours are able to block off UV rays. But because kids are always moving around we recommend good children sunglasses with impact-proof and scratch-proof lenses.
Finally, pick the right kids sunglasses style. Kids won’t wear the best sunglasses for children if they are not fun to wear. If you want to make sure that your child will like the eyewear you will buy, always bring them along so you can try the different selections and ask on what they like the most.
