Children’s SunglassesWritten by Tim Gorman
Sunglasses for children should be one of your top priorities to provide for your child as a parent. Usually kids need sunglasses more than us adults, because in most cases (not all) they are outside more than us. The harmful UV rays are especially more harmful to children, being that they are not as developed as adults and their eyesight should be treated with fragile care.
Children have option to wear cute, fun, funky and even fashionable sunglasses. With styles they are coming out with now days, kids have a lot more options than we do as adults! You can give them sparkly horn-rimmed sunglasses, cat eye sunglasses, star or heart shaped sunglasses, and sort. Little girls can even sport wearing Barbi around if they please.
Children’s sunglasses are not just all about awesome and fun decoration, but to keep them safe against suns UV rays. If there is one thing that is in common with adult and children sunglasses, is that they both provide same protection to fight against suns harmful rays.
The History of SunglassesWritten by Tim Gorman
Did you think that sunglasses were always used to protect our eyes from sun? Well if you did, you are most certainly mistaken. The first reason why they darkened glasses was because of smoke tinting, which was held in China before 1430. It was so far back in time, that of coarse their glasses were not of any prescription, and they were not used to protect your eyes from sun. The Chinese judges had often worn sunglasses with quartz to hide expression in their eyes while during a court case.
It was only until actual year of 1430 that prescription sunglasses came about in China from fair country of Italy. The sunglasses from Italy were also obviously darkened, but they were darkened for court cases as well.
The experimentation of tinting lenses came from a man named James Ayscough in 18th Century. He as well, did not seek sunglasses as protecting your eyes from rays of sun, but for correction of vision impairments.
