How To Choose Sunglasses For Children?

Just like their skin, it is essential to protect the eyes of children UV rays by choosing a suitable pair of sunglasses. But this choice can be difficult because several parameters are taken into account. We give you our advice!

Why is it important?

Even more than the eyes of adults, children are very fragile. Up to 10/12 years, the lens which is the main protection of the retina against UV, does not yet fully play its role and let run 7 times more UVR than adults. If the shirt and sunscreen became automatisms for the protection of children’s skin, the hat and the sunglasses of quality are also essential. Accustom children to wear sunglasses from their early age, is to protect them from serious eye problems for more late.

What type of protection?

Just like solar creams, there are different degrees of protection for glasses, between 0 and 4. It is recommended to bring the child up to its 4 years of glasses of category 4, which let only 15% of the light, providing maximum comfort to the eyes of the child.

After her 4 years, you can choose protection 3 except in the case of strong exhibitions such as skiing or beachfront.

Finally, make sure that the CE mark (European standard of protection) is always present on the selected pairs.

And mounts?

Wear your choice directly to plastic mounts! Very resistant and indeformable, they do not have platelet to the nose, which will prevent the child from getting hurt if ever he falls.

Some pairs of glasses have a special ergonomics or have a central part in silicone, thus adapting perfectly to the roots of the noses of children up to 2 years.

Regarding the shape, prefer a round mount to protect better the rays of the Sun and which will better cover the field of vision. Choose branches ‘Headband’ or add a cord to avoid that your child lose his glasses

For prescription glasses, how does it work?

Same as for the solar non-correctrices!

In any case, do not hesitate to seek advice from your optician Krys, he will be here to guide your choice.
