Thank You to Real Kids Shades for providing me with their products free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
We received three pair of Real Kids Shades to review. They have everything from newborns to 12 years old.My 12 year old daughter chose Fabulous in White, my 7 year old niece chose Fabulous in Tortoise while my 3 year old niece chose Toddler Shades for ages 2-5 in Pink. All of their glasses are fashionable while giving them the protection they need while giving me peace of mind that their baby blues (and browns) are taken care of.
Real Kids Shades are made specifically for kids so no more buying the smaller adult glasses to accommodate the little ones. they are specifically constructed to fit kids faces and lifestyles. Their glasses are shatterproof, impact-resistant and adaptable to sports and active lifestyles. They are made to be worn year-round. Their banded frames fit just as well under ski helmets as they do bike helmets.
Real Kids Shades are the doctor recommended sunblock you can apply directly to your kids’ eyes. They’re made with shatterproof, impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses because it’s the best stuff kids’ sunglasses can be made from. Our Xylex frames are super light and durable while our TPE frames are extremely flexible and bendable. Our wrap-around frames minimize exposure to harmful peripheral light. Opticians can even fit some of our styles with prescription lenses. These are just a few of the reasons why doctors like Real Kids Shades.
At first I wondered how long the little one would actually wear her glasses but she took to them really fast after seeing the other 2 wear their shades. These are definitely a must have since we are not in the summer season and spend much of our time outdoors. Along with our SPF, Real Kids Shades will now be another necessity in our summer vacation bags.
Here are a few Eye Disorders Caused By Sun Damage
• Age-related macular degeneration
• Pterygia – abnormal tissue grown on the whites
of the eyes
• Skin cancer around the eyes
• Photokeratitis – sunburn of the cornea
Since your eye lenses cannot repair themselves it is extremely important to protect them now! Left unprotected you run the risk of the above disorders, not to mention blindness. Did you know UV rays can damage your child’s eyes anytime of the year? While the harmful effects are three times greater in the summer than winter, there’s still a high risk of sustaining serious eye damage in winter months. UV rays can also do a lot of damage on overcast and cloudy days. This was something that was new to me! I now feel comfortable sending the little ones out to play when the sun is at its brightest.
