In the same way, we protect our children’s skin against sunlight, we should protect our children’s eyes against UV rays too. The ultraviolet radiation and blue light transmitted by sunlight can cause eye health issues in later life such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Less exposure to sunlight will benefit your children’s eyes in the future.
Children’s eyes are less capable of blocking UV rays than adults’ which means they can be more susceptible to damage to the retina. The retina is the extremely light-sensitive area at the back of the eye. Harmful UV rays can penetrate deep into them without strong protection.
These are just some of the reasons why children should wear sunglasses. It can be hard to find stylish children’s sunglasses but we have a large range for children to shop from, for both girls and boys. You can even match with your mini-me and get matching frames for all the daily in Oakley, Stella McCartney or Ray-Ban.
Oakley Junior Radar EV XS Path
A shield style is one of the most recommended sunglasses types for children as it wraps around the eyes and face blocking any light entering the eyes. Oakley has very stylish sports frames to help your child’s eyes stay UV free. Perfect if you have a child that loves to be active outdoors or going for family bike rides.
Ray-Ban Junior Aviator
We have all the staple Ray-Ban frames in junior sizes available so you can match with your little one. Ray-Ban frames tend to be unisex so they are good for the whole family. From the Aviator, Wayfarer, Round and hexagonal we have a large range of styles and colourways to shop from, in both Junior and adult sizing.
Polaroid is known for its creative, fun and trendy sunglasses so they are perfect if your child loves to stylishly stand out!
