When I would put sunglasses on my infant, I would get many compliments on “how cute” she looked and how adorable her sunglasses were. While I admit my child is quite adorable in shades, I do not put sunglasses on her in order to make a fashion statement. I feel that if I am going out in the sun and I will be protecting my eyes, why shouldn’t I protect her eyes as well? I know children often do not leave their sunglasses on long enough to provide adequate protection, so I thought that by sunglasses on her as an infant, she would be so use to them as she got older that she would leave them on her face. I was totally wrong about this theory, since children are so curious and want to touch and play with EVERYTHING! Now she is getting use to keeping sunglasses on her face, but when she is playing they tend to slip or fall off.
Real Kids Shades has a solution to this problem. Not only do they produce protective children’s eyewear that is durable, but they also had REAL Kids in mind when they came up with their design. Their shades for infants and toddlers come with a VERY comfortable and adjustable strap to keep the sunglasses on. Playing on the beach, running around the pool, or even chasing bubbles in the park, Real Kids Shades stays put so your little one’s eyes stay protected.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says children’s eyes are at increased risk for permanent damage from sunlight until they are at least 10 years old. And yet most children’s sunglasses are sold as toys. Toys are fun, toys are great, but not if they’re expected to protect something as vital as your kids’ eyesight.
