Q&A with Dr. David Jones
Dr. David Jones Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Do children need to wear sunglasses?
Children’s eyes are more susceptible to UV and HEV radiation than adult eyes because the lenses inside young eyes are less capable of filtering these high-energy rays, and kids spend much more time outdoors than most adults do. Sunglasses that block 100 percent of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays are extra important for children. In fact, many experts believe our eyes get 80 percent of their total lifetime exposure to the sun’s UV rays by age 18.
