Protect your eyes — and your kids’ eyes too! Wear glasses with 100% UV protection. An eye doctor can check your current glasses if you’re not sure.

Kids really need protection. Their eyes are clearer than adult eyes, meaning more UV rays penetrate. Cute sunglasses without UV protection are worse than nothing. They darken the view, and so the eyes open up and take in more harmful radiation. Why care? Exposure to UV rays can lead to cataracts, macular degeneration, and vision loss.
