Were you aware that the sun radiates light to the earth, and part of that light consists of invisible ultraviolet (UV) rays? When sun rays reach the skin, they cause tanning, burning, and other skin damage.
There are two ultraviolet rays that effect us the most: UVA & UVB.
UVA rays cause skin aging and wrinkling and contribute to skin cancer, such as melanoma. UVA rays pass effortlessly through the ozone layer (the protective layer of atmosphere, or shield, surrounding the earth), they make up the majority of our sun exposure.
UVB rays are also dangerous, causing sunburns, cataracts (clouding of the eye lens), and effects on the immune system.
Sunglass Protection for Kids:
Many people are unaware that sun exposure also damages your eyes. Exposing yourself and your baby one day in the sun can result in a burned cornea (the outermost, clear membrane layer of the eye). Extended exposure can lead to cataracts, which is a clouding of the eye lens, leading to blurred vision later in life. The best way to protect eyes is to wear sunglasses.
Kids enjoy wearing sunglasses, especially fun, multicolored frames like the Baby Banz brand. These sunglasses are super tough, made of a polycarbonate lens and a unique neoprene band for the comfort of your child. Special filters provide 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays.
