Children as young as three need sunglasses .

Do your kids as young as three need sunglasses ?

It is not for aesthetic reasons but for the protection of their fragile eyes.
It maybe a problem forcing them to wear those sunglasses but if the parents are wearing one ,it will be easier to persuade them to wear it too. Children like to ape what their parents are doing.

According to some experts, they should wear sunglasses to protect their eyes from the strong sunlight.Over-exposure to UV rays has also been linked to blurred vision and even blindness.

Keep your child from long exposure to strong or bright sunlight . Do not allow them to be exposed for too long , excessive exposure to sunlight can potentially damage their eyes .

To protect their eyes, children as young as three should be wearing sunglasses when playing outside in bright weather.

Toddlers are especially vulnerable to the sun’s rays, as their lenses are more transparent than an adult’s, allowing more short-wavelength light to reach the retina. and can cause vision disorders.

Parents should buy a good pair of sunglasses with the necessary protection. Buying a cheap one may
well increase the risks of sun damage to their children’s eyes.

Children being young may not know how to take care of those sunglasses and they can easily be lost ,manhandled and broken. Getting them an expensive one is out of question. Perhaps a reasonable and affordable one will suffice.

I am really lucky enough to have a very good vision.
But I didn’t know that when you’re that young , you already need to put on some eye protection.
