Getting your children to wear sunglasses is as important as getting them to wear sun cream, after all you only have one pair of eyes.
As a parent it is up to you to look after your child’s health, they are children after all. Their eyes are susceptible to UV damage; just as much as ours are; which can lead to everything from painful yet easily healed surface burns to irreversible cataracts. It is also important to note that children tend to spend much more time outdoors than adults, which means they demand even more protection from the sun’s threats.

Polarised sunglasses reduce glare and increase contrast sensitivity. Sportsmen and women began wearing them decades ago, but today they are worn by anyone wanting quality sun protection for their eyes.
Light becomes polarised when it hits a surface. This is where the photons in the light all vibrate in one direction instead of random directions. When this happens it causes the ‘glare’ reflected from the surface, a car window for example; this glare distorts the colour of objects therefore making them harder to see.
Polarised sunglasses work in a similar way to a venetian blind, the blind blocks light from certain angles while still allowing light from other angles to filter through. The lenses filter out some of the reflected glare and allow other light waved to pass through to your eyes. A polarising lens works when it is positioned at a 90 degree angle to the source of the glare. Polarised sunglasses are designed to filter horizontal light and are mounted vertically in the frame; they are aligned carefully so that they properly filter the light waves.
The polarised lenses need to have some colour as it is not possible to polarize light without colour. The darker the colour the higher the level of polarization. You need to choose the colour of your lenses depending on the reason you are wearing them, each colour affects vision in different ways.
- Gray – transmits all colours evenly. It is good for everyday use. Especially good for use around the sea where the water tends to be blue in colour.
- Brown – improves contrast and depth perception so is good for driving. Light brown is good for use on overcast days and is popular with the fashion conscious as brown is flattering to the face.
- Red – mainly used for sports in bright and sunny places.
- Orange and Yellow – filter out blue light and increase contract sensitivity, perfect for driving on a cloudy day.
- Green – keeps a good balance among the colours of light and is popular with tennis players and golfers.
- Blue – allows a large amount of blue light to filter through so is good for partly cloudy weather.
- Copper – provides maximum contrast, so it is best for any activity where good vision is important.
