Do little kids need sunglasses?
Children need sunglasses just as much as adults do. A young child’s developing eyes are vulnerable to the harmful effects of UV radiation.
Polarized sunglass that have 100% UV400 protection means that the lenses will block harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Investing in a good pair of sunglasses for your child at an early age helps establish healthy eye care habits and reduces the risk of future eye problems.

Yes, sunglasses are safe for toddlers. However, you want to make sure to shop for eyewear that is specifically designed for young children.
Features to look for in sunglasses for toddlers:
- 100% UV400 (UVA and UVB) protection
- Anti-reflective (or anti-glare) and anti-scratch coatings
- Sturdy frames and that can withstand the active lifestyle of a toddler
- Flexible and lightweight materials (e.g., silicone or bendable plastic)

What type of sunglasses are best for kids?
The best sunglasses for kids are those that offer 100% UV protection, have durable lenses and frames, and fit comfortably.
Polarized sunglass lenses will be labeled with UV400 or 100% UV protection. This indicates that they block both UVA and UVB rays. These lenses normally come in grey, green, and brown colors.
Polycarbonate lenses are an excellent choice for their impact resistance, while durable frame materials like silicone or plastic can withstand rough handling.
When it comes to comfort, we recommend a wraparound frame style for kids that will provide better coverage and minimize the entry of peripheral light.
A light pair of wraparound frames are less likely to fall or be taken off due to their comfortable fit.
If you’re searching for a pair of sports sunglasses for you child, you should also look for frames that allow the attachment of adjustable straps.
Are polarized glasses okay for kids?
Yes, polarized glasses are safe and even beneficial for kids. Polarized lenses reduce glare from reflective surfaces such as water, sand, and snow, providing clearer vision, reducing eye strain, and providing overall sun protection.
You can purchase both prescription and non-prescription polarized sunglasses, just make sure they provide 100% UVA and UVB protection to safeguard their eyes from harmful rays.
Is anti-glare worth it for kids' sunglasses?
Yes, we recommend all kids’ sunglasses have an anti-glare or anti-reflective lens coating. It reduces reflections on the lens surface, improving visual clarity and reducing eye strain.
It can be particularly useful when kids are exposed to bright sunlight or in situations with artificial light sources. The added comfort and clarified vision provided by anti-glare coating is an essential feature for your child’s sunglasses.
