Eye protection is a habit best learned young.
Teach your baby to wear sunglasses
early in life. Eye damage is cumulative.
The younger your children start, the better
off they will be.
Infants and toddlers are more vulnerable
to the sun's rays because their eyes are
more transparent than adult eyes. UV rays
pass right through, leaving them more
susceptible to retinal injury.
Kids with light colored eyes are more
sensitive to sunlight than children with
dark colored eyes.
Reports indicate that those who spend
long hours in the sun without proper eye
protection have an increased chance of
developing eye disease, such as cataracts.
