Kids’ shades more important than we think

The American Academy of Pediatrics says that children’s eyes are at increased risk for permanent damage from sunlight until they are at least 10 years old, because their eyes are highly sensitive and still developing. The Real Kids Shade shared the news.

It’s also true that 90 percent of damage from the sun occurs by age 18. We all use sunscreen, but less than a third of parents protect kids’ eyes. That would include me.

There are lots of cute shades for kids out there, and they range from $14.99 and up babies to tweens (with and without straps to hold them on). Teens will want to wear them on their own because shades are cool.
