Choosing the right sunglasses for your children

Published on 22-05-2017

As summertime quickly approaches, protecting your child's eyes has probably crossed your mind. It should – it’s very important. What a lot of people don’t know is that the harmful ultraviolet rays can penetrate glass and cloud coverage. So it’s very important to wear sunglasses at all times of the year during the day. Choosing the right sunglasses is a vital component of protecting your child's eyes from the dangerous ultraviolet sun rays. Here are some tips for choosing the right sunglasses for your child.

  • Make sure to get regular eye exams: It’s important to get your child's eyes checked by a physician to make sure they aren't having any difficulties with their sight. The earlier you catch a problem, the better the chances are that they’ll be able to correct it, or at least help prevent further damage. If they need prescription glasses you can get a second pair of prescription sunglasses which will both improve their vision and keep their eyes safe from the sun.
  • Choose sunglasses that are the right size: Choosing the right size sunglasses for your child is important - not only for the comfort but also for the coverage to protect their eyes. It’s also vital that they aren't falling off and ultimately getting lost.
  • Choose the right type of sunglasses for your child's age and with 100% protection against ultraviolet sun rays (UVA and UVB): There are many different types of sunglasses, and some are more appropriate for specific ages. For smaller children, colors that children will want to wear and straps help sunglasses stay on. For older children , sport sunglasses are a proper choice. Choosing glasses with 100% UVA and UVB protection will help avoid eye problems later on in life.
  • Choose a pair that fits the child’s style and personality: As much as comfort and protection are important, so is style. When choosing a  pair of sunglasses, be sure to keep your child’s face shape in mind. Certain styles of glasses look better on certain faces.

If you teach your child early on how to protect his or her eyes, it will be a lesson they will carry with them for life. Choosing the right sunglasses with the right amount of protection for your child will help ensure their safety and comfort. Protecting their eyes now can help prevent harmful eye problems and loss of vision later in life. Make it a part of their every day life from year dot and it will be normal and natural for them to reach for their sunnies!
