A few weeks ago I received a call from Faith over at www.eyescreamshades.com telling me about her wonderful products for kids. Well, yesterday I got a sample in the mail and I’m impressed so I wanted to share them with you and spread the word! Just another one of those things that I wish I knew about when my kids were young.
I love seeing little kids in sunglasses. They look so cute and they think they look so incredibly “cool” with them too – it’s just fun. But it’s important too. Unfortunately most parents buy their infant and toddler sunglasses for the “cute” factor and to help a little with the brightness while on walks or at the park but good eye protection is important beyond helping the baby not to squint too much.

From Faith’s Website:

Sunglasses are not “toys” or novelty items, but serve an important fuction- protecting our eyes from harmful uv rays. The cumulative effects of longterm exposure to such rays can contribute to the following:
cataracts, macular degeneration, photokeratitis, ptergium, as well as skin cancer around the eyelids.
Children must wear quality sunwear with polycarbonate lenses that provide 100% UVA&UVB protection.
Eyes Cream Shades styles are fun, comfortable , and trendy…… ( Faith Smith – Founder, Eyes Cream Shades, Inc – ” The Kids Sunglass Expert“)

Here’s the great thing about Eyes Cream Shades – not only do they provide the 100% UVA/UVB protection with the required polycarbonate lenses, but they’re so cute and the colors are fun (and have fun names). They’re high quality so when your little on pulls them off, etc, they won’t break apart right away but they’re not so heavy and cumbersome that the baby will fuss when they’re on. The price is right too – they’re not the cheapy $2 things you can get at Walmart but you won’t be paying for RayBans either! 🙂

Head on over to www.EyesCreamShades.com to see all the fun colors yourself. Make sure you let Faith know that we sent you!

  1. I’m an eye doctor and a mother, and I really share your enthusiasm for Eyes Cream Shades. When I was still a student and sat in a lecture about UV damage to the eye, I got so scared I immediately ran out and bought these sunglasses for my 2 year old daughter. My preschooler has been wearing her Strawberry Ice shades for over 2 years and they are still in wonderful shape. These sunglasses are made from the same lens material that pediatric eye doctors prescribe for all children, polycarbonate, bc of their outstanding safety properties. Not only are they the best kids sunglasses I’ve ever come across but the price point is exactly right.

    My advice is that you have them professionally adjusted to your child’s head shape by an optician to help them stay put. Thanks Parenting Zoo for raising awareness about how important kids sunglasses are!
