Relevant to vision? Absolutely. There were tons of parents with their children running around in the summer sun, none of which had on any protective eye wear.

Think about this. More  more than 75% of UVR passes through a child’s crystalline lens, putting the retina at greater risk to adverse effects of UVR exposure… and less than one third of the children in the U.S are adequately protected against the sun.  Is your child in the 2/3 being affected?

Any eye care doctors you speak with will tell you how important it is to ensure your child is wearing protective eye wear every time they go outside.
