May is Ultraviolet Awareness Month!

Have you ordered your child a pair of Real Kids Shades yet? Now is the time because May is Ultraviolet Awareness Month! The leading volunteer eye health and safety organization Prevent Blindness America has dedicated the entire month to spreading information on the harmful effects the sun’s UV rays have on eyes, and how they be combated.

As we’ve said before, children are at an extremely high risk of developing eye problems from UV damage. Because they have yet to fully develop their eyes do not possess the same ability to block UV rays as an adult’s would. If your child’s eyes are consistently exposed to UV rays not only could it lead to irreversible vision problems in the future years to come, but various eye diseases.

Be proactive in protecting the health of your children’s eyes by purchasing them a pair of sunglasses with 100 percent UV protection from Real Kids Shades during Ultraviolet Awareness Month!
