    Every child looks adorable in a pair of sunglasses. But effective eye protection is critical for kids, particularly during the summer months. It is recommended that hats and sunglasses for anyone exposed to the sun. UV radiation is just as detrimental to the eyes as it is to the skin, with a cumulative effect that can lead to problems in adulthood. Summer is also peak season for outdoor sports, many of which can be hazardous to young eyes. So a pair of sunglasses is almost important to children.

    It's a good idea, because exposure to ultraviolet rays may raise his risk for cataracts and other eye problems later in life. But if your child resists, don't push it. A visor or a hat that keeps the sun out of his eyes might be a more workable choice than shades for babies, toddlers, and even some older kids.If your child is open to wearing sunglasses, let him help pick them out so he'll be more likely to wear them. And make sure you wear sunglasses, too, because he's probably eager to copy you.Not just any sunglasses will do, though. Putting low-quality sunglasses on your child is worse than his wearing no glasses at all. That's because poor-quality sunglasses can cause your child's pupils to dilate-therefore letting more UVA and UVB rays in-without offering protection.

    kids should definitely wear sunglasses while they are outside, In fact, wearing sunglasses as a youngster can help protect against the most common eye conditions that develop later in life.We tend to forget that a lot of our sun exposure happens when we are children, when we spend a lot of time outdoors in direct sunlight, UV light from the sun is a form of radiation and it can damage cells in the eye.There's no firm evidence that children's eyes are more susceptible to UV light than adults. But we do know the longer eyes are exposed without protection the more damage they accumulate from these harmful rays.
