Most adults buy themselves good quality sunglasses as they are aware of the damage the sun can do to the eyes. It’s a worry though that the same care and attention isn’t generally given to children’s sunglasses.
They’re still exposed to the same harmful rays that can damage our eyes long term, yet they are mostly bought inexpensive sunglasses that offer very little protection, or if they are really unlucky wear no sunglasses at all. It’s just as important to buy children sunglasses that contain good quality lenses with full 400UV protection.
They can be a little more expensive at around £10-£20 but are very worthwhile in the long run.
