Shop The Best Sunglasses For Kids

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 must be protected against the sun to avoid the risk of 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 must ensure they protect against UV rays. Here’s a little guide to bear in mind when you’re shopping for sunglasses.

Filter categories refer to the level of protection offered by the sunglasses against UV radiation. The categories range from 0 to 4, with 0 providing the least protection and 4 providing the highest protection.
