Help protect your child's eyes for now and the future

As a child grows up, their eyes have an important and demanding job. They are constantly working, when your child is studying at school and at home, playing and taking on new things.

Gill at Twynings Opticians tells me that a child's eyes are more vulnerable than those of an adult. Two major threats can affect their healthy sight.

One is UV Light in that a child may receive up to three times more sun exposure that adults, the other is traumatic eye injuries. Children's eyes are fragile and can be put at risk from knocks and tumbles when playing or taking part in sports without eye protection..

There are several simple things you can do to help protect and preserve your child's vision:

  • Take them to get regular eye exams
  • Choose lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays
  • Protect their eyes from glare and eye fatigue
  • Choose their lenses first, and then their frames
  • Ask about impact-resistant lenses for when your child is playing or taking part in sporting activities

Transition lenses are clear indoors and at night. But will automatically darken to adjust to changing light throughout the day.
