-- bring awareness to the importance of shielding children’s eyes with its collection of safe, durable and awesome rubber sunglasses. Offering 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays, Babiators believes in defending against the sun’s harmful properties with style.
While spring and summer are seasons when the sun feels more prevalent, the sun tends to sit lower in the sky during the winter time which “actually gives you more exposure if you’re out for a longer period of time,” according to Dr. Susan Taub, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Northwestern University School of Medicine. According to Dr. Mark S. Borchert, Pediatric Neuro Ophthalmologist at CHLA, “the lens of a child allows 70% more UV rays to reach the delicate retina than in an adult.” With Babiators sunglasses, protection can be provided year round. Containing no BPA, phthalates or lead-based paint, Babiators are made with pliable rubber and shatter-resistant lenses, and are the perfect protection to shield little aviators eyes against the sunlight.
“We know how important it is to take care of your child’s health, and especially their eye sight,” said Carolyn Guard, co-founder of Babiators. “We created Babiators because we know that habits form at a young age, and we wanted to promote a healthy habit of wearing sunglasses to help protect children’s eyes. Not only do these glasses shield little ones from UV rays, they are also fun, unique and vibrantly colored so that children love wearing them and parents can rest at ease knowing they are doing their part to promote healthy vision.”
Available in Black Ops Black, Blue Angels Blue, Rockstar Red and Princess Pink, Babiators look awesome while providing sun protection all four seasons and are available in size 0-3 and 3+ with a retail price of $19.99. For more information on Babiators, please visit www.babiators.com.
