Sun Safety: Kid-Friendly Sunglasses

Nadia Hoppe

You already know that using sunscreen is the best way to protect your child’s skin from the summer sun—but it’s important to make sure his eyes are safe, too. Prolonged exposure to UV light can harm eyes, says Paul Rychwalski, M.D., pediatric ophthalmologist at the Cole Eye Institute in Cleveland, Ohio. One way to help?  UV-protection sunglasses, Rychwalski says. But keep in mind: “A cheap pair of sunglasses from a clothing store probably won’t have the UV protection you need,” says Anne Sumers, M.D. ophthalmologist and clinical correspondent for the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Instead, look for a pair that has 100 percent protection, she recommends. Here are two we like:


Babiators shield little eyes from 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays and start in sizes fit for 9-month-olds. They’re also free of BPA and phthalates., $20.

Baby Banz

In sizes fit for kids from birth to 10 years old, Baby Banz sunglasses come with a wrap-around strap. Plus, they absorb 100 percent of UV radiation and are BPA-free., $17.


And for even more sun protection: Have your child wear a wide-brim hat, too. “It very importantly offers the upper face, eyelids and nose protection,” says Rychwalski. “This can reduce the risk of several types of skin cancer.”
