Real Kids Shades is a leading maker and provider of 100% UVA and UVB protective sunglasses for children. They advocate sun safety through their Safe Eyes Everyday program and help parents provide sun protection for babies, toddlers, and kids up to age 12.
Parents usually protect their children’s skin every time they go out in the sun by using sunblock lotions. However, most parents don’t realize that the sun can also cause permanent and irreparable damage to children’s eyes. According to RKS, children’s eyes are at an increased risk for permanent eye damage from sunlight until they are at least 10-years-old.
Unlike skin cells, eye lenses cannot repair themselves. Once they are damaged, they are damaged forever. This can lead to serious eye diseases and even blindness. This is why it is strongly recommended for children to wear protective sunglasses when playing outside in the sun.
We recently received a couple of Real Kids Shades sunglasses to try out from their selection. Their sunglasses are made with shatterproof, impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses. Their Xylex frames are super light and durable and their TPE frames are extremely flexible and bendable. They also offer wrap-around frames that minimize exposure to harmful peripheral light.
I like how flexible and bendable the frames are and how they seem extremely comfortable. I am happy that we had a chance to learn more about eye protection and I will ensure that my son wears his Real Kids Shades when we are outside playing in the sun.
Be sure to visit Real Kids Shades online to learn more about sun protection and to check out their selection of affordable 100% UVA and UVB protective sunglasses for children. You should always have a pair of sunglasses for your child inside your bag/diaper bag ready to use when needed.
