As a parent, you are likely concerned with protecting your child from all the dangers they could fall victim to. You watch their diet, their video game usage, dental health, vaccinations, and make sure they get adequate physical activity, all to keep them safe and assure a happy and healthy life. One thing you might not have thought about is their eye health, at least not much past getting an eye exam every few years. One of the biggest dangers to your child’s eye health is UV radiation.
Not only is extended exposure a leading cause of skin cancer but it can also be damaging to young eyes, and yours, too! Young eyes are more susceptible as their ocular lenses cannot filter UV rays as effectively as an adult’s can, which can result in retina damage, blurry vision, and in some cases, cataracts.
The solution is working with an experienced window tinting service to block out the harmful UV rays. This should be done on your vehicles and can also be done in your home. Even if you don’t do it throughout your home, at least consider the rooms your child spends most of their time in, such as their bedroom and playroom. This is important because kids naturally spend more time at the window than adults do, resulting in an increased risk for UV damage.
