If you have a child who loves nothing more than running around outside, climbing trees, and playing sport, then you really need to consider their eyewear carefully.
Kids should always wear sunglasses outside, even if the sun isn’t super bright.
When it comes to buying sunglasses for active kids, you should steer away from sunglasses with glass and metal lenses, as they are more susceptible to breaking and causing injury to your child.
Instead, look for plastic frames which are lighter and less easy to smash or break.
Also, look for wrap around designs which are purposely made for sports and will fit snugly to your child’s head.
