What you need to know about your kids eyes and the sun
Sunlight Can Permanently Damage Your
Everyone loves the sun. And everyone knows the sun can really damage skin – especially to kids’. However, most parents don’t realize the sun can also cause permanent and irreparable damage to their children’s eyes. In fact, children’s eyes are at increased risk for permanent eye damage from sunlight until they’re 10-years-old.
Children’s Sunglasses Are Not Accessories –
They’re Necessary Gear
You need to think about sunglasses the same way you think about bicycle helmets. You wouldn’t let your child ride a bike without a protective helmet, right? Don’t let them play outside without protective sunglasses. Period. UV rays can damage your child’s eyes anytime of the year. While the harmful e ects are three times greater in the summer than winter, there’s still a high risk of sustaining serious eye damage in winter months. UV rays can also do a lot of damage on overcast and cloudy days.
Sun Damage Is Permanent and Cumulative
Unlike skin cells, eye lenses cannot repair themselves. Once they’re damaged, they’re damaged forever. Eye lens cells are never replaced and over time, the harm done is cumulative. This can lead to serious eye diseases and even blindness.
Eye Disorders Caused By Sun Damage
• Age-related macular degeneration
• Pterygia – abnormal tissue grown on the whites
of the eyes
• Skin cancer around the eyes
• Photokeratitis – sunburn of the cornea
