Should children wear sunglasses?

    Definitely!  The earlier we can protect the eyes from the harmful effects of UV the better.  Children under the age of 10 are at an increased risk of UV damage because their natural lens is less capable of absorbing the UV rays before they get to the back of the eye.  It is ideal to find sunglasses that block 99-100% of UV rays.
