Kids UV Protection

Kids Need UV Protection More Than Adults

The risk of damage to our eyes and skin from solar UV radiation is very high. The danger continues to increase as we spend more and more time in the sun throughout our lifetime.

It is especially important for kids to protect their eyes from the sun. Children generally spend much more time outdoors than adults.

Some experts say that because children tend to spend significantly more time outdoors than most adults, up to half of a person’s lifetime exposure to UV radiation can occur by age 18.

Children are also more susceptible to retinal damage from UV rays because the lens inside a child’s eye is clearer than an adult lens, enabling more UV to penetrate deep into the eye.

Make sure your kids’ eyes are protected from the sun with good quality sunglasses!
