Protect your child’s eyes from UV rays

We all know how important it is to make sure children wear plenty of sun screen to protect them from the harmful rays of the sun, however, studies suggest many of us often neglect to ensure we are protecting their eyes.

The eyes of a child under the age of 10 transmit 75 per cent of UV radiation compared to 10 per cent in adults over 25. Despite this, 76 per cent of parents admit to not making sure their child wears sunglasses when out and about in the sun.

It is thought that 80 per cent of a person's lifetime exposure to damaging sunlight occurs before the age of 18.

Ultraviolet light rays are as dangerous to your child’s eyes as they are to their skin and it is well documented that prolonged exposure can cause macular degeneration of the retina (ARMD), cataract of the lens, corneal damage and ocular cancers.

We stock a range of children’s frames for all ages, with 100 percent UVA/UVB protection.

Why not pop in and have a chat with us today to see how we can safeguard your child’s sight for the future?
