Parents are often concerned about their children’s health and are constantly taking precautions to makes sure they stay out of danger. It’s essential that you apply this same attention to the health of your kids’ eyes by protecting them from potentially damaging UVA and UVB rays.
With summer approaching, it’s important to take these extra precautions now. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can put your family at greater risk of sun damage. Some UV-related eye conditions that can develop from sun exposure include photokeratitis, macular degeneration, cataracts and more.
Because of these risks, you’ll appreciate knowing that all Real Kids’ sunglasses are third-party tested to ensure that they provide 100 percent UVA and UVB protection, as measured by several different governing bodies in the U.S., Europe and Australia. Our tested sunglasses meet a variety of regulations, and a few of them are listed below.
- Every model of our children’s sunglasses are subjected to the most stringent light transmittance tests, where they’ve proven to block 100 percent of rays down to 400 nanometers.
- All Real Kids’ sunglasses comply with regulations set out by the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) for protecting children’s eyes from UVA and UVB rays.
