Before the age of 12, kids don’t have a fully formed crystalline lens. Their eyes are therefore even more sensitive than those of adults. Protecting them well is therefore essential to avoid problems in adulthood.
You should also be aware that in the mountains, the reflection of sunlight by the snow makes UV rays particularly powerful. Yet another excellent reason to equip your kid with ski goggles!
As you'll have realised, the main role of ski goggles is to protect the eyes from UV rays. But thanks to their shape, which perfectly fits the top of the kid's face, they also protect against wind, cold and bad weather.
Stronger than traditional sunglasses, ski goggles are ideal for winter sports that require more movement and therefore more impact. In the event of a fall, for example, the goggles’ imposing frame will protect part of the kid's face, with little risk of breakage.
If you prefer sunglasses, we advise you to look for specialist sports glasses with more solid frames.
