How to choose sunglasses for kids

Thanks to widespread awareness about the dangers of ultraviolet (UV) rays, most parents are vigilant about protecting kids? skin with sunblock, hats and clothing. But what?s often left out of the mix is a good pair of sunglasses?and that can spell future vision problems. We asked Yasmeen Syed, a licensed optician, instructor at Seneca College?s opticianry program and mom of two in Mississauga, Ont., for tips on choosing children?s sunglasses.
Do kids really need sunglasses"

Children are more susceptible to damage from ultraviolet (UV) rays, which can penetrate deep into the eye and increase the onset of problems like macular degeneration, cataracts and surface eye diseases. It?s really important we protect their vision, especially because kids spend lots of time outside and their eyes haven?t fully developed yet. They need sunglasses that protect against 100% of UVA and UVB rays, even on cloudy or overcast days?the rays penetrate through the clouds year-round.
At what age should kids start wearing sunglasses"

I?d say two-and-a-half to three years old. When they?re younger than that, it?s physically difficult to do, but it gets easier as they get older.
Is a wide-brimmed hat a good alternative to sunglasses"

A wide-brimmed hat is a good idea, but it won?t replace sunglasses. The sun will reflect off the sidewalk, sand, water or snow from below, so it?s still getting into their eyes.
Don?t we need sunshine to generate vitamin D"
A little bit of sunlight is good for all of us, but if children are playing outside for extended periods of time, that?s intense, and their eyes need to be protected. Just like we protect our skin with sunscreen, we need to protect our eyes with glasses.
What should parents look for when choosing kids? sunglasses"

The material of the lenses should be polycarbonate, which is ideal for children: it?s impact-resistant and lighter than standard lenses, and polycarbonate itself is UV protective. A large frame always provides the best protection, with temples that are a little wider to prevent peripheral sun from getting in. Not only does it block the most UV, but it keeps out sand and debris. The frame should be close-fitting and flexible?look for spring hinges that extend beyond 90 degrees, so they?re less likely to break. Kids tend to be rough with their glasses.
What if a kid already wears prescription glasses"

You can get them a second pair with tinted polycarbonate lenses, or you can get photochromic lenses that change from light to dark to avoid having two pairs to keep track of. They won?t replace a good pair of sunglasses, but it?s better than not wearing anything. They do provide full UV protection, but sunglasses tend to be bigger and give you a little more wrap.
How much should parents expect to spend on good-quality children?s sunglasses"

You?re probably looking at about $70 to $140, and prescription lenses will cost more. What you want to avoid is low-quality...
