We all love a new pair of sunglasses to rock the summer. We have pulled together some fantastic pairs to protect your child from harmful rays.

Children’s eyes need to be protected against the sun to avoid the risk of any permanent damage to their sight. Ideally, children should start wearing sunglasses as soon as they can keep them on. Up to 80% of exposure to the sun’s damaging rays happens before 18 years of age.

When choosing sunglasses for your child you need to make sure they give protection against UV rays. Here’s a little guide to bear in mind when you’re sunglasses shopping.
