Sunglasses Aren't Just Cool - They Protect Kids' Eyes! A Must Read!

Sunglasses aren't just a fashion statement – they are a summer safety staple for children, especially kids with blue or green eyes. Every spring, my pediatrician reminds us to make sure our three blue-eyed boys have good-fitting sunglasses. Experts say light-colored eyes are more at risk for UV damage. After a day in the sun, eyes can become bloodshot, swollen and/or sensitive to light. Long-term effects, according to WebMD, may include:

  • cataracts
  • macular degeneration
  • cancer

Scary! So even if your kids don't have blue or green eyes, they should still have a cool pair of shades!
