Big Protection for Growing Eyes

Did you know children’s eyes aren’t fully developed to adequately filter UV rays and harmful blue light? This makes it very important that their eyes are always protected. In a child’s first 12 years, 80% of learning comes through their eyes.1 The use of smartboards, online presentations and digital testing methods, along with the expectation that they do most assignments on a tablet or computer, are changing the visual needs kids have.

Transitions® lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, and reduce painful glare, allowing children to see their best in any light condition. Plus, they help filter harmful blue light from screens indoors and from the bright sun outdoors.2 They’re available in shatter- and impact- resistant materials that are best for children.

Ask our optical department about how to protect your child's eyes.
