Protecting babies' eyes
The younger the child is, the more vulnerable their eyes are. Unlike an adult's eye, the lens in a child's eye has almost no protective pigments. A child's crystalline lens is totally transparent with a very large pupil. Children's eyes therefore absorb much more harmful solar radiation than adults.
Even in the shade, the eyes are exposed to UV rays reflected by the clouds, water, snow, sand and asphalt. Sunglasses are important for eye protection for babies, just as they are for moms and dads!
Julbo’s popular Looping line of sunglasses are specially designed for babies, infants and toddlers. Three different sizes are offered in the Looping 1, 2 and 3. Choose the model according to the age of your child.
