Whether kids wear glasses or not, when they play sports like baseball, soccer, golf, they do need to wear protective eyewear to protect their eyes and the area around their eyes, such as the orbital bone.
Children should start to wear sunglasses as early as possible — to get used to wearing them and also to protect their eyes from glare and UV damage, especially for blue eyed children who are more sensitive to sunlight.
Kids should wear quality sunglasses purchased from a reputable optical store for three reasons: they’re more likely to be more comfortable and to keep them on looking thru a quality lens, the UV protection is guaranteed, the frame will be fit to their face and be more comfortable.
