06/06/19New Kids Sunglasses – Children can look cool this summer too!

We all know that sunglasses are an essential for sunny days yet it’s easy to forget that our kids need them too. With summer inviting more outdoor play and holidays, sunglasses for your child should be on your shopping list.

For some parents, buying sunglasses for children is a reluctant purchase. With them jumping around, playing outdoors and generally causing chaos, sunglasses are easily lost, damaged or simply never worn. However research has shown that children as young as 3 should be wearing sunglasses when playing outside – as up to 80% of exposure to the sun’s rays takes place before the age of 18.

To encourage little ones to wear their sunglasses and keep young eyes well-protected from harmful UV, we’ve updated our kids sunglasses collection at Claudine Ickeringill Optometrists. Children now have more choice than ever of good quality, sturdy and stylish frames. By investing in a pair of sunglasses your child likes, there is all the more chance they will wear and enjoy them.

Izipizi Kids Sunglasses

This summer we are excited to have become stockists of Izipizi sunglasses for toddlers and juniors. Izipizi is a trendy french brand who create colourful sunglasses in classic shapes, designed to fit kids for the sun and for fun.

We are carrying two ranges, SUN Kids 12-36 months and SUN Junior 3-10 years. Izipizi SUN Kids are super cute sunglasses in playful colours and tiny sizes that will fit your toddler and ensure they are fully protected from UV. For 3 – 10 year old boys and girls, Izipizi Junior is the perfect next step. Adapted directly from the adult collection, the Junior range provides a very affordable option ready for brighter days and outdoor play. We know that kids and toddlers can be fussy about wearing sunglasses but Izipizi have created a range that kids will want to wear and put a smile on their face. We love Izipizi for their fun loving attitude to eyewear, creating a balance of function and style, perfect for young children.

Ray-Ban Junior

We’ve seen them do it, parading around in Mum or Dad’s Ray-Bans to feel cool. Fortunately Ray-Ban have created smaller versions of the adult collection, designed to fit smaller faces. As an internationally known brand, many children want to wear a pair of Ray-Bans to show off to their friends and though sun protection is the first priority, looking cool is a great spin off. The children’s collection has the same great quality assurance we have come to expect from Ray-Ban.

All our sunglasses provide 100% UV protection and we will be happy to guide you on the best options for you and your child, including prescription sun lenses if required.
