Protect children's eyes from the sun

Sun: watch your eyes!

The sun promotes well-being, makes you look good and naturally generates vitamin D. However, it remains dangerous for health , especially for children's eyes if we leave them unprotected. In the sun, you apply sunscreen to your child's fragile skin, right? Well, the eyes are also threatened by the harmful rays of the sun, so you must protect your children's eyes.

Children's eyes are more sensitive

Children's pupils are larger and the tissues are less rich in pigment. The lens does not play its role as a filter until the age of 10-12 . Thus, it allows UV rays to pass through to the retina, which can cause irreversible damage to the eye. Even if your child's gaze is not in the direction of the sun, the reflection of the rays on sand, snow, mirrors and other walls can be dangerous. Some vision problems can be due to unprotected sun exposure when we were little. Indeed, AMD (black spot in the center of vision), cataracts, solar conjunctivitis are examples of pathologies that can be linked to UV rays. So remember to protect your child's eyes from an early age.

Children's sunglasses: the absolute weapon!

There are 5 categories of UV protection, from 0 to 4. Category 4 sun lenses are the most protective. Category 0 to 2 lenses do not sufficiently protect your children's eyes for sunny days. Sunglasses are generally offered with a category 3 index, meaning optimal protection for sunny days! All children's sunglasses at Acuitis are sold with a category 3 protection factor. Category 4 sun lenses are ideal for extreme sunshine: snowy mountains, skiing, etc.

For little ones, opt for at least category 3. Children's sunglasses must fit well for maximum protection.

Based on these observations, Little Acuitis has created a range of sporty and urban sunglasses to protect your little ones' eyes in all circumstances.

You can't imagine forgetting the total screen for your child's skin, so also think about sunglasses for your child's eyes.
