What is UV protection on glasses and why is it important for children? We're sure you've seen those cute little red heart-shaped kids sunglasses at the store before, and it's also pretty likely that you thought, "Aww! Those are too cute!" Well, we're right there with you! But did you know that even though those sunglasses had a dark tint that doesn't mean they offer protection from UV rays?
You read that right: while the tinted lenses help our eyes see more comfortably outside, what really matters is whether the lenses have UVA and UVB protection. For kids even more than adults, making sure their sunglasses (and regular glasses!) have 100% UV protection is crucial to the safety of their eyes. UV protection glasses are important to protect not just children's eyes but also in teens and adults.
