Why Children Need Safety Glasses
Although activities like fishing or paintball feel like play to your children, they still present many potential vision risks and, consequently, require adequate kids' safety glasses. A flying piece of debris or an accidental fall can cause serious, irreparable damage, so supplying little ones with properly fitted gear is of the utmost importance. Some activities that require coverage include:
- Science experiments involving chemicals
To ensure your children can have a worry-free time, equip them with the appropriate safety glasses or goggles designed specifically with kids in mind.
Children's Safety Glasses Standards
Our collection of child safety glasses meets the same rigorous testing and functional standards as our adult line. Here, you will find kids' eyewear that aligns with the American National Standards Institute's (ANSI) criteria for basic or high-impact protection. That means your children can enjoy the same coverage as those who work in high-risk fields like carpentry or construction. Look for a "Z87" label on the safety glasses' lens to confirm your child's gear meets these ANSI standards.
Child Safety Goggles & U.V. Protection
To provide your child with shielding from a wide range of vision hazards, choose a pair of safety glasses with sun protection. Although not all kids' eyewear options address this risk, many offer 99.9 percent U.V. coverage. Such features are indispensable for outdoor use as the sun can damage to your child's eyesight. For extra U.V. defense, try safety glasses with polarized lenses that will reduce glare.
