Should children wear sunglasses?

It is absolutely a good news for children to have a summer holiday because they can get a full relax and don’t worry about their study. Finally they can have a wonderful holiday. For parents, they are sorry to their children because most of their time is occupied by work and have no time to company their kids. They want to do some make-ups.


When the summer holiday is approaching, the families are planning to have a summer vacation. After deciding where to go , they will do some preparation, like camera, bags, tents, etc when realizing they will go many outdoor activities, they get hats, sticks, sun block and so on for themselves and children. And the parents will get pairs of sunglasses for themselves but ignore their children. In fact, hats or sun block can not prevent the sunshine totally. In other words, their children need a pair of comfortable sunglasses , too.


It is proved that our eyes get 80 percent of their total lifetime exposure to the sun’s UV rays by age 18. And excessive exposure to UV radiation has proved to be linked to the development of cataracts and other eye diseases. The main factor is that children’s eyes are more susceptible to UV than the adults’ eyes because the lenses inside young eyes are less capable of filtering these high-energy rays. Also, be aware that your children’s exposure to UV rays increases at high altitudes, in tropical locales and in highly reflective environments such as in a snowfield, on the water or on a sandy beach.


So it is a right decision to select a pair of sunglasses for children when they are playing or doing sport in the sun. Of course,they are too young to choose  a right pair of sunglasses for themselves. Thus parents should be a big help.  he best places to find children’s sunglasses are the sunglasses specialty stores like Sunglass Hut and your local optical shop. The experienced opticians can do an exam for your children’s eyes and provide the suitable sunglasses with them. Meanwhile, optician will explain the benefits of the sunglasses and how to take good care of them. If you are busy at that time, you can chase one on the internet. It has a wider choice and lower price. Besides it can save your time and energy.


Don’t be hesitate to buy a pair of sunglasses for your children, if you want to have an enjoyable summer vacation both for you and your kids.
