Are you about to pack your suitcase for the Summer holidays? You have probably already have in your list the swimsuits, the hat and the sunblock but don’t forget the sunglasses!
This week, I have found Ki ET LA, the French Sunglasses expert, which is not only offering maximum protection but also technical, trendy and environmentally friendly shades.
In order to preserve your little one’s visual health over the long term, it’s advised to only buy glasses with the CE mark on them, choose frames with polycarbonate and preferably category 4 lenses, select frames that wrap around well, are light and are made from flexible plastic.
Avoid ‘gimmicky’ glasses and favour safety as Sunglasses are more than a simple fashion accessory but a true health product.
Did you know that up to 80% of a person’s lifetime exposure to UV light will occur before the age of 18? Did you know that before the age of 12, the crystalline lens, (the protective barrier) has not completely formed? Before the age of 1, 90% of UVA rays and more than 50% of UVB rays reach the retina, so protecting your child’s eyes before the age of 1 reduces the risk of damaging their retina by 40%.
It’s essential to try to keep your child out of direct sunlight, using a hat with at least a 2- to 3-inch brim to protect the ears, eyes, forehead, nose, and scalp, covering your child’s sensitive skin with clothing and wearing UV-blocking sunglasses to protect their eyes and the delicate skin around.
In order to preserve your little-ones sight and ensure they are not at serious risk, protect their young, fragile eyes as early as 3 months old.
