Sunglasses for Kids -- As Important As Sun Block!

Eye experts caution parents to protect their babies and kids eyes from the cumulative and damaging effects of the sun. They say it's never too early to start wearing sunglasses that protect against ultraviolet rays that can cause eye disease.

University of Alabama-Birmingham optometrist Leo Semmes, O.D., said that when it comes to sun protection, "the younger, the better." Damaging effects to the eyes from exposure to sunlight is cumulative, and most of us have reached up to 50 percent exposure by the time we are 18. But by protecting eyes with sunglasses and brimmed hats, we can block much of the sun's damaging UV rays. And how young should you start? "As young as you can keep them on 'em," Semmes said.

The earlier children start wearing sunglasses the better their chance of avoiding major eye health problems later in life. The sun's UV rays contribute to potentially blinding conditions like cataract and macular degeneration.

Children's eyes experience more UV radiation than adults because they usually spend more time outdoors and their eyes let more UV rays in. Children are more prone to sun damage to the eyes as their pupils are usually larger and the lenses clearer than adults. Eye damage is cumulative, so start toddlers off early in life with the best UV protection!

The decrease in the ozone layer also lets more UV rays into eyes. Wide-brimmed hats keep out about 50 percent of UV radiation but children also need to wear sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation.

Do NOT buy toy sunglasses for children that don’t have the recommended protection.
