Only 73 percent of adults wear sunglasses, and even fewer – 58 percent – provide shades for their children. While more adults need to wear sunglasses, it’s especially important to protect children’s eyes since they are still developing and are often more sensitive to sun.
No child is too young for a pair of sunglasses. Although they can be easy to lose or break, the investment is worth it to keep your child’s eyes healthy. Plus, your kids will feel extra cool and grown-up with their very own pair of shades.
Schedule an appointment with your physician for more advice on protecting your vision and to address any existing eye discomforts.
