Children have even more delicate eyes than adults due to their sensitivity to the sun’s UV rays. Without proper protection, it can increase the occurrence of eye problems and conditions such as macular degeneration or cataracts. For this reason, sunglasses are essential for them, beginning their use from an early age.
Children, we know that they have a lot of activity, so it will be important that sunglasses are made of resistant and lightweight materials, such as polycarbonate. The hinges are another important point to take into account, to avoid being at the optician’s every moment repairing the pins. There are many models that extend the angle to more than 90 degrees, and that makes them highly recommended sunglasses.
The main recommendations to take into account would be:
- They must have the CE mark (European Community) which certifies that they have passed the quality registry.
- There should be no gap between the nose and the frame of the sunglasses so they do not slip
- The elastic bands that some sunglasses have must fit correctly to their heads to prevent them from slipping.
- Organic glass is highly recommended to prevent breakage
- Let’s not forget that sunglasses are not the only protection that children should wear, but we must complement it with a hat, caps or visors, as well as internal hydration.
We are going to suggest some models that, due to their high ratings on AMAZON, are to be taken into account.
