Real Kids Shades Provides Eye Protection from Sun Damage Review

During our visit to Fort Tryon Park, I made sure my son's eye were protected with a pair of Real Kids Shades. I think sometimes that parents forget our children need to protect their eyes also.

Now putting shades on my son is easier said then done. Once outside he just wants to go go go. To make sure he was able to keep the shades on I used the optional neoprene strap. The shades fit nice and snug and stayed on even while my son was running!

With summer outing and travel about to happen, I think it's important to add Real Kids Shades to your kids sun care bag.

Did you know that The American Academy of Pediatrics says that children's eyes are at increased risk for permanent damage from sunlight until they are at least 10 years old?! Why? Because their eyes are highly sensitive and still developing!
