Sunscreen for your kids EYES!
For many parents, convincing their children to wear sunglasses is as difficult as getting them to wear sunscreen. According to The Vision Council, only 7.4 percent of American adults report their child “always” wears sunglasses and 13.4 percent report they use “nothing” to protect their child’s eyes from the sun’s UV rays. Kids generally receive three times the annual sun exposure of adults. Sunglasses are effective because they offer both UVA and UVB protection. Polycarbonate and Trivex lenses have a UV filter and are lightweight and impact resistant for children. When purchasing sunglasses for kids be sure they have UVA & UVB protection. Transition lenses that adjust to lighting are perfect because they offer the "sunscreen" your kids eyes need. Talk to your kids about the importance of protecting their eyes from the sun! They’ll thank you in the long run. Call Mill Creek Optical for more information or stop by and check out our kids sunglasses starting at $25!
