My top picks from SmartBuyGlasses for kids sunglasses & UV protection

If you follow me along on Instagram you’ll know we all got some cool shades from SmartBuyGlasses. Maybe I am biased but I think the kids look super cool and their eyes are protected from the rays.  Did you know that kids eyes are more susceptible to UV and HEV radiation than adult eyes because the lens inside a child’s eye is less capable of filtering these high-energy rays?!  Also, there is something called “Blue Light“.   Long term negligence may cause nerve damage in the eye.  Below I’ve selected glasses for my kids and a variety of price points to the $30-$100.

My sweet pea is wearing her Julbo’s which are more of a sporty style which is just like her.  She loves to run, jump and the versatile style of her shades suit her perfectly.  It’s her style.  Her lens is a Spectron Silver Flash and a Category 3.  It means that they provide extra protection from both visible and UV light.  These lenses will usually only allow less than 20% of visible light to penetrate the lens.  This means that they will block out 80%+ of light and offers 100% coverage.

Now her twin is more of the little fashionista and she idolises her brother so I thought maybe they should have a similar look.  Knowing your kid’s style is one of the key decision factors when it comes to picking out  sunglasses for kids in my opinion.  Her Polaroid glasses are spot on.  Her glasses are a Category 3.  That means they provide extra protection from both visible and UV light.  These lenses will usually only allow less than 20% of visible light to penetrate the lens.  This means that they will block out 80%+ of light and best against strong light.  Polaroid sunglasses offer 100% UV coverage, they are comfortable, hers are polarised as well do no eye fatigue.  Who knew did Polaroid make such great, quality sunglasses?

Super stylish, super cool and the lens are so good in all the styles I picked. The Orange lenses match well with this frame and are made from CR39 to shade your eyes from the sun and offers the same 100% UV protection.  SUnglasses-for-kids-Smart-Buy-GlassesThere’s really no shortage when it comes to finding the right frames for kids when you shopping. You want good lens and ones that offer at least 80-100% UVA/UVB protection.  
Do you choose plastic or metal? I choose plastic for kids and ones that tend to be more flexible. Also, because their noses are still developing plastic is more comfortable and easier on the bridge for their noses.   It’s never too early to have kids learn about caring for their eyes and it’s never too early to have good quality eyewear for kids and don’t forget to get chords for those shades.
And don’t forget about your eyes!   Get the look {here.}  You need to protect them too.  Oh!  You should check out their Authenticity Guarantee.  All glasses are backed up with a 24month warranty against manufacturer defects. We loved reviewing our gorgeous sunglasses from SmartBuyGlasses.  My new favourite shop for online glasses.  Delivery came quickly too via Fed/Ex.
