Sunglasses on Kids are Just as Important as Sunscreen
One of the great wonders of the human body is the ability of damaged cells to be repaired or replaced. The lens of the eye is a notable exception. The cells of the lens of the eye are never replaced; the proteins of the lens are never replenished. The lens cannot repair itself; damage accumulates over a lifetime.
During sunny days, most adults wear sunglasses when they are outside or driving. However, how often do you see children wear sunglasses? It is rare, isn’t it? This should not be the case. Children need to protect their eyes just as much as adults, if not more. Children's eyes are more susceptible to UV and blue light than adult eyes because the lens inside a child's eye is less capable of filtering these high-energy rays.
Excessive exposure to sunlight during early childhood is harmful to the eyes. Sunlight contains harmful UV radiation. The risk for retinal damage from the sun’s rays is greatest in children less than 10 years old, although the consequences usually do not become apparent until well after they are adults.
Children with blue eyes are at a greater risk for UV damage than children with brown eyes, so parents should be aware that blue eyes need vigilant protection. Especially on days at the beach where there is significant sun exposure, children are at risk for sunburn of the eyes.
Because kids spend much more time outdoors than most adults do, sunglasses that block 100 percent UVA are especially important for children and it's wise for kids to start wearing protective sunglasses outdoors as early in life as possible.
