School is out and summer is here in full force. If you can pry the video game controllers from your children’s hands and send them outside, make sure you do so with a pair of sunglasses from Europtics. Sunglasses for kids you ask? Why? We’re glad you asked.
Did you know that the lens of your child’s eye transmits about 70% more UV radiation than do adult eyes, putting their retina at greater risk? Did you also know that the cells of the lens of our eyes are never replaced and the proteins never replenished. Kids also look up more, which means they are constantly looking up into the sun. Therefore, the sooner you protect your children’s eyes the less damage they need worry about later in life.
Kids under 10 are at a higher risk for both skin and eye damage because their eyes are more fragile, especially at our elevated altitude. At Europtics we have a great selection of affordable sunglasses for kids. Stop into one of our stores today and let us help you find some wonderful and fun sunglasses for your kids. Plus, you’ll save big during our 30th Anniversary Sale too!
