I have an infant, a toddler, and a teenager; should my kids be wearing sunglasses
The answer is absolutely yes! The crucial fact of the matter is that infants, especially up to a year old, need to protect their eyes early in their development from UV (ultra-violet) light and now, with many of the recent studies, from Blue Light. Blue Light, also known as HEV (high energy visible) light, comes from not only the sun, but many of our electronic devices such as TV, cell phones, iPads, fluorescent bulbs. UV and Blue Light protection is crucial before a child reaches 18-20 years age.
