Here is a great resource for eye health awareness for kids, for parents, and for teachers.
• Children receive up to three times the annual sun exposure of adults.
• Almost 50 percent of parents report that their children “seldom” or “never” wear sunglasses
with 100 percent UV protection.
• Children’s eyes are especially susceptible to UV-related harm because the crystalline lenses
in their eyes are more transparent to UV than for adults. Unlike the mature lens of an adult eye, a child’s lens filters out less UV rays so more radiation reaches the retina.
We have kids’ Raybans in stock now. For kids that wear glasses, Transitions lenses are a great option – especially brown because they lighten up faster.
