Protect Their Eyes

4 March 2010 By

www.sunglassesforsport.com – the specialist online eyewear retailer – have just added a kids sunglass section to their website featuring UV400 rated sunglasses, with models to suit all ages from babies up to teenagers and prices starting at just £7.95.

According to a report undertaken by the (UK) College of Optometrists, 3 in 4 four parents are risking their child’s eyesight by exposing them to bright sun without appropriate protection and nearly a third of parents in Britain do not buy their children sunglasses at all. Following this report, Dr Susan Blakeney, optometric adviser at the College of Optometrists, commented, “I am shocked that so many parents aren’t ensuring that their child’s eyes are protected in the sun and am equally astounded to see that of those who do, many are opting for ‘cheap and cheerful’ over quality. Sunglasses don’t need to be expensive to offer good protection but it is important for parents to check that the pair they buy carry a CE mark”.

But where do you find good quality children’s sunglasses at sensible prices? www.sunglassesforsport.com – the specialist online eyewear retailer – is a good starting point. They have just added a new section to their website featuring a wide range of sunglasses suitable for ages 1 - 16 years (babies to teenagers).
