#UVprotection for Young Eyes

Filed under Eye Health, Prescription Lenses


Ultra violet rays from the sun cause damage to eyes that is linked to cataracts and other eye diseases. The damage is cumulative throughout life so starting protection early is a good idea.

It is important to choose sun protection for your child that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. The colour of the lenses is personal choice and will not affect the UV protection.

Often times children are active and moving between indoors and outdoors. It can be hard to manage two pairs of glasses. An easy fix is the use of Transition lenses. They are clear inside and darken when outside. If you have questions about sun protection for your child we are happy to help.
