A Wide Selection of Kids’ Sunglasses

The sun’s UV rays can cause significant damage to our eyes, and children love spending time outside. Neither of these facts is exactly breaking news. However, we often fail to see the intersection.

The amount of time children spend in the sun is lovely. However, without the right protection, it could cause significant, long-term damage to their eyes. In addition to a sun hat and sunscreen, your child needs sunglasses with 100% UV protection. 

Vivid Eye Care in southeast Calgary has an excellent selection of kids’ sunglasses to help keep their eyes safe and healthy.

Not All Sunglasses Are Created Equal

You might be thinking, “Why would I go to an optometrist when I could get sunglasses at the nearest gas station?” It’s true; sunglasses are not difficult to find. 

However, sunglasses with 100% UV protection can be harder to find. In order to properly protect their eyes, your child should be wearing sunglasses with 100% UV protection.

At Vivid Eye Care, we carry a wide selection of children’s sunglasses, all of which offer 100% UV protection. This way, you can rest assured that your child’s sunglasses can fully shield their eyes.

We know some kids aren’t necessarily the most careful with their belongings. That’s why most of our children’s sunglasses are also made with shatterproof polycarbonate lenses to prevent breakage and shattering.

Why Choose Vivid Eye Care for Your Sunglasses?

We’re not just about selling sunglasses—we’re passionate about eye care. Here are even more reasons to visit us for your sunglasses.

  • Eye Health Expertise: Our experienced team can help you find sunglasses that not only look great but also provide optimal UV protection.
  • UV Protection: We offer sunglasses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, helping safeguard your eyes from sun damage and potential eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration.
  • Wide Variety of Styles & Brands: We carry a diverse selection of sunglasses to suit every taste and preference. 
  • Sunglasses for All Ages: We offer a dedicated selection of children’s sunglasses to help keep your little ones’ eyes protected from the sun’s harmful rays. Our kid-tough frames are designed with comfort and durability in mind.

Potential Effects of UV Rays

In a lot of ways, a child’s body is more resilient than adults, but unfortunately, this isn’t the case with eyes. The lens in a child’s eye is not as effective at filtering harmful UV rays out of the light entering the eye. This leaves the retina vulnerable to damage.

In many cases, eye diseases and conditions are the cumulative results of a lifetime of damage. While these conditions aren’t necessarily common in children, there can be a higher risk of development later in life when the eye has been encountering damage since childhood.

When the proteins in the eye fluid start to rearrange with age, they can collect in clumps on the lens, causing cloudy, dull vision. This cloudy lens is called a cataract, and it is one of the most common eye conditions out there.

A number of factors can contribute to the development of cataracts (such as being overweight and smoking), but perhaps the most common is unfiltered exposure to UV light. While cataracts affect almost everyone on a long enough timeline, sunglasses with 100% UV protection can be an excellent way to delay and reduce the severity of cataracts.

This disease usually comes with advanced age (which is why it’s often called age-related macular degeneration or AMD) and can cause severe and irreversible vision loss.

Much like cataracts, this disease can be brought on by a number of factors—however, a lack of UV protection can increase your risk of developing it. Although AMD does not appear in children, the damage the eye sustains during childhood can contribute to eventual loss of vision from AMD.

Too much ultraviolet (UV) exposure from the sun is a risk factor for cancer, including types that affect the eyelid and the conjunctiva (thin tissue lining the eye). It can also lead to ocular melanoma, a form of cancer that can develop anywhere in the eye but often starts in the middle layers.

Wearing sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays is more than a fashion statement—it’s a health one. Your stylish shades can help protect your eyes and the skin around them from harmful radiation, lowering your risk of these cancers.
