2/ protecting their eyes:
Did you know?
Protecting your eyes from the sun is very important.
For adults and kids alike, and even more so if you’re in the mountains since you’re closer to the sun. But kids under 12 don't have a fully formed lens, so they're even more sensitive to UV rays.
In town and in the mountains, consider having sunglasses for little ones for all outings.
And in the mountains, you have to be even more vigilant because the snow reflects 85% of UV rays!
For little ones and for yourself, in winter, it’s a good idea to bring level 4 glasses, which can also be used if you go to the seaside in summer. Glasses should be worn even in cloudy weather, as UV rays pass through clouds. Glasses should follow the shape of the face to prevent rays from passing through the sides of the lenses.
To make sure your child has visual protection at all times, ski masks are perfect! They cover the entire top area, ensuring maximum protection, preventing UV rays from getting in through the sides. This can happen with the wrong sized glasses.
