Daylight Saving Time Doesn’t Mean to Stash the Shades

It’s that time of year when the days get shorter and the weather gets colder. Of course, that means that winter is coming. Just because summer is over, though, doesn’t mean that the danger of UV rays is gone. It’s important for your children to wear sunglasses all year long!

Toddler Playing AutumnWhile the days are shorter – even as we come up on daylight saving time – fall and winter are still dangerous seasons for your child’s developing eye sight. The autumn sun can still cause sunburn and UV ray damage just like in any other season, while the glare off pure white snow can create an intense stream of light into your child’s eyes. While you might not think that it’s a big deal, it can seriously affect how your child’s eyesight progresses.

The UV rays from the sun reach us all year round, not just in the summer when it’s hotter and sunnier. That means that you need to be prepared all year, too. Wearing sunglasses is just as important for eye protection and health during a blustery winter day as it is during a summer heat wave, and with the proper eyewear, your child can enjoy outdoor activities in every season. Remember that protected eyes are happy eyes!

When searching for eyewear for your child, we recommend looking for frames that will block both UVA and UVB light. Not only will you be protecting your child’s eyes, you will also be protecting the sensitive skin around the eyes. UVA and UVB rays affect skin, as well, not just your child’s eyes, which is why wearing sunglasses with UV protection like those offered by Real Kids Shades is a vital part of keeping your child protected.

Our full selection of sunglasses offers a range of options to choose from that are sure to fit your child’s lifestyle. If your child is more active, we would recommend a line like the Bolt, Blade or Storm. These glasses are specially created for those who are constantly on the go and have a thirst for the adventure. Is your child more laid back? Our Surf or Breeze lines might be better suited for them. They’re great for just hanging out and lounging by the pool or going for a drive in the car.

At Real Kids Shades, we love donating to charity. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and through the end of this month, we will be taking 10 percent off our normal prices, plus giving another 10 percent of all sales to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. That’s a great deal for you and in support of curing cancer – an offer you can’t refuse!
