The lens material: glass lenses - a good choice in terms of quality, they do not scratch and do not distort the image. However, glass glasses are dangerous because they can break and injure your eyes. Therefore it is better to give preference to of polycarbonate or acrylic plastic lenses.

Polycarbonate-durable material, it is scratch resistant. These glasses are suitable for children of all ages. They are lightweight and provide virtually no distortion.

Acrylic plastic - the cheapest material. Glasses with such lenses undesirable for children, since they are easily scratched and give strong distortion, and can be harmful to developing eyes.

UV-filters. Good children's sunglasses should have UV-filters. It is particularly important to protect the eyes from ultraviolet Class B (UVB-filters). It is important to remember that if the lenses are very dark, the eyes is tricked and squints. In the absence of the filter in such a situation the retina can be burned.

Color lenses- Not all colors are safe. The most favorable is green and gray colors - they do not harm the organs of vision, relieve tension in eye muscles and do not distort natural colors.

Red and orange lenses have no contraindications, although for extended wear can cause tired eyes. Black and brown lenses will capture sunlight and do not cause harm to the eyes. If you decide to buy this model, check carefully the characteristics of lenses and make available filters. SLR and blue lenses absolutely contraindicated children. They do not capture the sun's rays, but rather make them even brighter.

Bezel- frame material is important to consider if the child is allergic. Read the product label, which must specify material and make sure the glasses are suitable for you.

When selecting sunglasses for the sun be sure to take the child with her to try on. They should not squeeze the head or slide off the nose. Some modern children's models have comfortable flexible temples-spring hinges. Children, of course, like sunglasses with their favorite heroes of fairy tales and cartoons. Be sure to check that the appearance of the glasses is combined with quality and safety.

Sunglasses should be regularly cleaned from dust and protected against damage, as damaged glasses are much more dangerous to the eye than their absence.
