CHILDREN

WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN CHILDREN'S EYEWEAR

Vision plays an important part in the development of children. Eighty percent of what we learn comes through the visual processing of information, yet two out of three children in the India do not receive any preventive vision care entering elementary school. According to the National Commission on Vision and Health, one in four children has an undetected vision problem. Additionally, a quarter of school-age children suffer from vision problems that could have been addressed or eliminated. Young patients have unique visual needs, as they use their eyes differently than adults and because of their age, their eyes, particularly their crystalline lens have not matured enough to offer some natural protection from their environment.

Impact Resistance- Make sure their eyes are well protected at all times. Your best choice is Polycarbonate lens material. They offer UV protection, are light, comfortable and cosmetically thinner. Our in-house lab can provide you with same day service.

Anti Reflective Coating- Make sure the lenses have AR protection. They provide greater visual clarity by eliminating lens reflection, are cosmetically appealing and allow the eyes to look more natural and are easier to clean.

Swim Googles / Dive Mask- Enjoy swimming and your favorite water activities while seeing clearly. They can provide the same visual clarity as prescription eyeglasses. They can be very affordable and ready the same day!

Sportswear- Make sure they are getting the right safety eye protection. Select a sport frame or goggle that offers the best protection for their particular sport or activity. Lenses should be impact resistant and provide UVA and UVB protection. AR coating for indoor or outdoor activities will enhance clarity. Tints, transition lenses and polarized lenses should be considered for all outdoor activities. They can be very affordable and ready the same day!

UV Protection- Make sure it is UV safe. Long term exposure can cause a host of eye diseases, increase cataract growth and damage the skin around the eyes. Lenses should provide UVA and UVB protection.

Blue-Violet Light Protection- Long term exposure to high energy visible light rays (HEVL) has been associated with retinal cell damage and age macular degeneration. Young patients enjoy spending a great deal of time viewing digital devices such as tablets and smart phones, both sources of HEVL light. Today’s lenses should provide blue-violet light filtering protection. Did you know that using electronic devices at night can even disrupt sleeping patterns?

Sunglasses- Make sure they are being protected outdoors. Lenses should be impact resistance and have 100% UVA and UVB protection. Frame should provide adequate coverage around the eyes. Tint choices in gray, brown or green filter the right amount of light entering the eye. They can be very affordable and ready the same day!

  • AR coating applied to the back side of the lens can eliminate annoying lens reflection.
  • Mirrored coating can provide can provide an extra layer of protection.
  • Polarized lenses provide UV protection and are the best choice for sun/glare protection.
  • Transition lenses provide UV protection under different lighting conditions. They provide the benefit of having two pairs of eyeglasses in one by changing from light to dark.
