4 Reasons Kids Should Wear Sunglasses

4 Reasons Kids Should Wear Sunglasses

If you're reading this right now, there's a great chance that you own a pair of sunglasses, or several! Everyone knows that sunglasses are not only a stylish accessory, but an important tool to protect your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Too much direct exposure to the direct sunlight can increase your risk of developing, cancer, cataracts, and other issues.ย 

So, do kids need sunglasses too? The answer is a BIG YES! ๐Ÿ˜Ž There are many scientific studies proving why it is so important to protect our children's eyes, but there are 4 of the biggest reasons we recommend sunnies for your kids!

1. Shade their eyes now!

Kids spend so much time outside - and in turn, typically get much more sun exposure than adults. Since children's eyes are not fully mature, it is harder for them to filter UV radiation than adults. This means our kids eyes are at an even bigger risk of damage caused by the sun's harmful UV rays than our own!ย 


2. Prepare for the Future!

The sun's UV can cause damage that accumulates over a person's lifetime. This makes eye protection and awareness even more important at an early age in your child's life! Prolonged UV exposure without the proper eye protection can lead to serious eye, health, and vision issues later in life. Some of these may include; Cataracts, Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Eye Cancer. With just a little eye health awareness and Sunnie protection - we can prevent these from being possible issues in the future!ย 

3. Protect the Skin

Sunscreen is equally important for UV protection for kids! Sunglasses for kids will help protect the skin closest to the eyes (the hardest spot to apply!)ย 

4. Create Good Eye Protection Habits

Kids often want to be doing what you're doing! If they see you wearing sunglasses, they will want to wear them too! It is important to install good habits around eye health from an early age!
