Buy glasses for children
Children may not be as interested as adults are in sunglasses but they certainly need them as much as grownups or even more.
Kids usually spend lots of time outdoors, generally more than most adults so they need a pair of sunglasses that protects them from the sun's harmful UV rays.
Excessive lifetime exposure to UV radiation has been proved to have a relation with certain eye conditions, such as cataracts (blurred vision), among others. Since kids spend so much time outdoors under the sun light, they need a pair of sunglasses that protects their eyes.
In addition, children's eyes are far more sensitive to UV radiation than adults’ eyes because the crystalline lens inside a child's eye is not fully developed and therefore is less capable of filtering this type of rays. So especially true for young children, the sooner they start wearing protective sunglasses outdoors, the better.
But because we know kids are playful and usually not very careful, sunglasses for kids are made of certain high-resistant materials and come with specific features to help them keep the glasses in good conditions. For example, rubber or silicon frames are very popular among parents because they are soft and flexible so they won’t break.
Besides, kids are so young that colourful frames are the best choice because they will look fun with their glasses on.
And for the trendiest parents, some sunglasses brands have started to produce junior editions of adults’ iconic eyewear, such as aviator, wayfarer or round sunglasses. Even sports styles are available for kids in case they are very active kids and need to wear their sunglasses when doing sports.
Sunglass cords are an accessory that most parents look for because they can be attached to the temples of the sunglasses so the sunglasses are hanging from the kids’ necks when they removed them.
