Children’s sunglasses are a necessity-Not and accessory.
Did you know that it’s JUST as important for a child to wear sunglasses as it is to wear sunscreen? I’m guilty, I am one of those parents that lather my kiddos up with sunscreen during the summer months but never really thought they should also be wearing sunglasses as well.
Sure kiddos look cool and cute with them on but by not wearing them outside at all times the UV rays could cause harm to their eyes. It’s not just Summer protection we need to worry about but Winter as well.
Some eye disorders that can be caused by Sun Damage are:
- Age-related macular degeneration
- Skin cancer around the eyes
That’s some scary stuff. You can purchase sunglasses pretty much anywhere but they are not created equal. Prevent Blindness America suggests you make sure that sunglasses block both types of ultraviolet rays, UV-A and UV-B 100%. (I didn’t even realize there were 2 types) Find sunglasses that fit your kiddo well, and look for ones with polycarbonate lenses and frames.
Real Kids Shades are the leading innovator of children’s 100% UVA/UVB eye protection. They offer high quality sunglasses in five different sizes for kiddos. The stages focus on style, performance and fit. They have products for Baby (0+), Toddler (2+), Kid (4+), Youth (7+) and Tween (10+) with options of Flex Fit and their new P2 Lens Technology.
Just recently we had the opportunity of reviewing Real Kids Shades with our kiddos. They were pretty excited when they all saw they had their own pair of awesome sunglasses. We reviewed the Toddler Explorer, Youth Breeze, Tween Blade and Swag. They fit them very well and they enjoy wearing them. I really like the feature of the wrap around with the Toddler Explorer glasses because it helps keep the sunglasses on my son without falling off his cute little face. =)
My kids give Real Kids Shades 2 thumbs up and I have to agree, I really like that I know where to go to find great shades my kids can wear that WILL actually protect their eyes.
