It’s time to head back to school, which also means the fall sports season is about to start. The next few weeks will be filled with shopping trips to buy new clothes, school supplies, and sports equipment. And there’s one more thing you’ll want to add to your shopping list – sunglasses for your children.
Excessive exposure to UVA and UVB rays can lead to permanent eye damage such as macular degeneration, which is believed to be the leading cause of blindness in adults. Also, too much exposure to the sun in childhood has been linked to cataracts in adults. It’s necessary to take action now to prevent future issues such as these, and it’s as simple as putting on a pair of sunglasses.
Between recess, after-school sports practices, and weekend games, your child will likely be in and out of the sun a good bit over the next few months, so visit the Real Kids Shades website to check out our selection of sunglasses and make a worthwhile purchase to protect your child’s eyes from the damaging effects of sunlight.
