Of course, some toddlers don’t like to wear sunglasses, and resist, or pull them off. If this is the case with your child, compromise by letting him or her wear a peaked cap or hat that shades his or her eyes from the sun.
Make sure that you buy your child’s sunglasses from a reputable shop, and that they are labelled as blocking 99 to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB rays. Don’t trust flea market or street market sunglasses though – they may not live up to their claims. Non-breakable lenses and frames are the best choice, and a pair of sunglasses with a medium tint will offer the best protection and comfort to your toddler.
There are plenty of cute toddler sunglasses out there, and they generally don’t cost a lot, so it’s worth making a small investment to protect your child’s eyes.
