The sun seems to be getting more harsh in the past few years. It seems that the environment is changing and in order to protect ourselves from the harsh rays of the sun we have to increase our sunscreen use and wear sunglasses more often - even in the snow!
My friend at BabyDashCo wrote the following review on sunglasses:
If you know me you'd know that I slather the sunscreen on my kids. I want to protect them from skin cancer now & for the future. Another thing most people don't realize is that the sun can also cause major eye damage. Water play & skiing are the most damaging to the eyes besides staring straight into the sun, which you should never do by the way! You should wear protective eye gear as often as you can. Did you know that children's eyes are at increased risk for permanent eye damage from sunlight until they're at least 10 years old? Yea.. Scary, and unlike skin cells, eye lenses cannot repair themselves. Once they're damaged they're damaged forever and can lead to serious eye disease and even blindness!
Real Kids Shades makes great sunglasses for kids. They're not like the cheap crap you buy at toy stores. Actually wearing those cheap glasses can do more harm to a child's eyes wearing them than not wearing anything at all. Shaded lenses without 100% UV-A/UV-B protection will relax pupils, causing them to dilate and let more harmful radiation into children's eyes. Yuck! Real Kids Shades are specifically constructed to fit kids faces and their lifestyle. All their sunglasses are made exclusively for infants and children in kid-approved styles that are shatter proof, impact resistant and adaptable to sports and active lifestyles!
E is wearing the Glide shades. These are Rubber-tipped temple pieces and wrap-around metallic frames make these the kids’ shades that Mom and Dad will try on when no one is looking.
These glasses are wonderful and I love that they come with detachable neoprene bands that are water proof. C was able to wear them in the pool, jump off the rock and go down the slide without them falling off. C is wearing the Xtreme sport shades. Like C these shades are made for the most active kids, with features designed to stand up to skiing, wave running, and triathlons.
I love the black because it's gender neutral. When C was done wearing them my niece wanted to try these babies out!
L is wearing the Flex shades which are made from TPE-a rubber like material that bends and twists but doesn't loose its shape.
So what's so great about these shades? They're lead-free with no bisphenol Aand no phthalates. They use category 3 Smoke Grey in most of their lenses because it gives excellent shading for strong sunlight, but are transparent enough to let you see your child's eyes. This is very important for children who can't speak. They communicate with their eyes so you want to be able to see their eyes at all times. Real kids Shades are so confident that their shades meets the highest quality standards that they back up your purchase with a 100% replacement warranty! They have various styles and sizes ranging from 0-12 years.
You can purchase your RKS for about $15-$20, a small price to pay for incredible protection. These sell in over 1,500 retail stores & 32 countries including Europe, Asia and South America or you can order them on line from RKS
