How can I protect my child’s eyes in the sun?

The sun’s rays can be really tough on a child’s eyes but there are a few precautions you can take to ensure your baby’s safety outdoors.
Sunglasses with UV protection are essential because exposure to UV rays may cause a higher risk of cataracts in later life. Choose sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection, to block both types of UV rays. If your younger child isn’t too impressed about wearing them, make sure you wear sunglasses too. Children are such copycats!
You should make sure she wears a hat with a wide brim which will also protect her eyes.
