Sunglasses for Kids

Ray-Ban™ - RJ9069SF


$77.00 - $87.00

Some parents believe: small kids do not need sunglasses, baseball cap is enough to protect a child from sun rays. Ophthalmologists disagree with them. They are convinced: a baby should be taught to wear sunglasses when he or she turns one year old or at least starting from the age of 3 years, when kids actively explore the world. We should remember: the younger the kid, the more susceptible his eyes to the sun. When it comes to sunglasses we have to pay special attention to the quality of the lenses, whether for adult or kids. For maximum protection the 100 per cent UV or UV 400 label should be selected. It is better to choose filters of brown, green or gray color with an average value of light absorption up to 70%. Lenses should be polycarbonate not to be broken and injure the child in case of a fall. The break-resistant frame must be curved and not leave any space between the eye rim and the eye.

The frame should be safe, strong, comfortable and made of hypoallergenic material. It also should be close-fitting and flexible - spring hinges that extend beyond 90 degrees will be good enough not to be broken quickly. Kids tend to be rough with their glasses. You can buy glasses without earhooks with a soft grasping rim, or a frame made of hypoallergenic rubber with a fixing tape wrapping kid's head around.

The main requirements for kids’ sunglasses are lightness, comfort, and safety. Toddlers, carried away by active movement and play, constantly forget that they are wearing serious optical devices. Now parents should not even think about what lenses to choose for kids since the world of ophthalmological practice has long found the best option - plastic. Some of them are made from carbonate and trivex. Of the advantages compared with mineral counterparts, you should note lightweight, impact resistance, and corrective properties. The uniqueness of polymer optics is that with a rough mechanical load on the sunglasses when the lenses break, they will not cause serious injury to the eyes, which is inevitable when glass breaks.

For children, polarized lenses are produced that can block the blinding glare reflected from the snow, water surface, and wet roads that harm the eyes. A variety of coatings are also applied to the surface of the plastic - anti-reflective, photochromic, and antistatic, preventing the penetration of ultraviolet radiation to the eyes. Kids’ sunglasses amaze with lenses of all colors of the rainbow, however, according to ophthalmologists, only gray and brown lenses are really useful. They absorb up to 70% of sunlight, filter out ultraviolet and infrared radiation as much as possible, and allow you to really perceive colors. Pink is acceptable for creating a fashionable look and playing on the streets on a cloudy day, but you need to consider that all shades of the red spectrum have a serious effect on the nervous system.

Wearing sunglasses as a child may help prevent certain eye conditions later in life that is associated with cumulative UV exposure, including cataracts and pterygium. UV radiation is not the only potential hazard from sunlight. Recently, researchers have suggested that long-term exposure to high-energy visible blue light from the sun may also damage the eyes over time. This increases the risk of macular degeneration in old age. Children's eyes are more sensitive to ultraviolet and blue light than adults' eyes because the lens inside a child's eye filters these high-energy rays less. This is especially true for young children, so toddlers should start wearing sunglasses outdoors as early as possible.

Models of frames for children are produced in three age categories: from 0 to 5 years; from 6 to 10 years;  from 11 to 15 years old. They provide a good view and are adapted to the structural features of the child's face. The production materials are titanium, plastic, and cellulose acetate - light, durable, and hypoallergenic. A good accessory is one that does not squeeze, does not move out, and is practically not felt on the face. Wherever you buy sunglasses for your child, it is important that there is a good selection and the ability to choose the size according to the shape of the child's face. It is preferable to choose polycarbonate lenses that provide comfort and safety due to their lightness and high impact resistance. For the health of your children's eyes, be sure to purchase products from trusted brands such as Polaroid, Carrera, and Converse.
