Why Children’s Sunglasses Are A Necessity – Not An Accessory
Everyone loves the sun. And everyone knows the sun can really damage skin – especially to kids’. However, most parents don’t realize the sun can also cause permanent and irreparable damage to their children’s eyes. In fact, children’s eyes are at increased risk for permanent eye damage from sunlight until they’re 10-years-old.
Unlike skin cells, eye lenses cannot repair themselves. Once they’re damaged, they’re damaged forever. Eye lens cells are never replaced and over time, the harm done is cumulative. This can lead to serious eye diseases and even blindness.
Eye Disorders Caused By Sun Damage
• Age-related macular degeneration
• Pterygia – abnormal tissue grown on the whites of the eyes
• Skin cancer around the eyes
• Photokeratitis – sunburn of the cornea
