Most parents are aware of the dangers of the dreaded sun burn, but did you know your child's eyes need UV protection as well? Your child's eyes are at special risk to damage from UV radiation. Children's eyes do not have the same developmental ability as adult eyes to protect against the sun's UV radiation. Make sure and pick up some good UV sunglasses with your spf 30 sunscreen this summer.
Visit the American Optometric Association for more info and tips for protecting your child's eyes this summer or give our friends over at Kid's Eye Site a call @ (405) 943-2020 with any questions or visit them online @www.kidseyesiteokc.com to schedule a child screening.
