MiyoSmart Sun lenses also protect from intense sunlight, which provides eye comfort and encourages children to wear their spectacles outdoors. They also offer protection from harmful UV rays, reducing the risk of long-term damage to the eye - so you can be sure your child’s eyes are well taken care of! The lenses quickly adjust to changing levels of sunlight, darkening in bright light and returning to a clear state indoors within seconds.
Our child’s eyes should be protected from intense sunlight when outdoors
Children are more susceptible to eye damage from UV light than adults, because:
Most time spent outdoors happens before the age of 21
Children’s eye structure differs to than of adults’, which means more damaging ultraviolet (UV) light reaches their eyes.
Additionally, if your child uses atropine eyedrops for myopia treatment, their eyes are more likely to be sensitive to light.Therefore, it is especially important for your child to use effective and reliable sun spectacle lenses.
