Should children wear sunglasses?
Children's sunglasses have created a fashion trend in the children's products market, with many trendy parents getting cool sunglasses for their kids. Kids love to wear them too, but is it really a good idea to give your child sunglasses?
It is perfectly fine to give children sunglasses at this time under the stimulation of strong sunlight, as their corneas and lenses are clearer than those of adults and UV rays are more likely to hit the retina, damaging the corneal epithelium of children and causing burns in the macular area of the retina. However, children's visual ability is not yet well developed and wearing sunglasses for long periods of time or incorrectly may affect their vision and health. Incorrect wearing can even cause sunglasses syndrome, which can lead to symptoms such as numbness and sluggishness in the child's eyes and nasal discomfort when breathing.
In addition, some children are reluctant to take off their sunglasses once they put on the shades, whether outdoors or indoors, even when watching movies or TV at dusk. This undoubtedly increases the burden on the eyes, causing eye muscle exausted and blurred vision. In severe cases, symptoms of dizziness and prolonged difficulty seeing can occur. So, whether you are an adult or a child, you should be careful when wearing sunglasses. Sunglasses can only be effective in protecting your eyes when they are worn correctly.
