One overlooked area in sunglasses are sunglasses for children. As with adults
it is very important that a child's eyes are protected from the harmful UV rays
of the sun. Actually it is probably more important for a child as they can spend
many more hours out in the sun than the average adult.
Luckily, that protection is now available, affordable and very fashionable.
Children's sunglasses can now compete with the most fashionable ones for adults.
Children's sunglasses are actually adult sunglasses but just on a smaller scale.
You have available to you the round, oval, rectangular and cat-eye shapes. The
color options are like the rainbow. Children's sunglasses offer
frames in both
plastic and the high tech metals. And for the real "cool" child be sure to find
a pair of wraparounds that look just like the bigger adult models.
If you have that active child that is always braking things, be sure to find a
pair of children sunglasses that have polycarbonate lenses that can take that
beating with breaking.
When picking out your child's sunglasses be sure to pay attention to the UV
protection offered by the lenses. You should shoot for the 95% to 98% blockage
of UV (UVA and UVB) rays.
