At Idol Eyes Australia, we specialize in babies and children’s sunglasses. We made the world’s first baby sunglasses in 1987. Followed that with Baby Wrapz the first rubber framed sunglasses with a headband for babies. Then our world-famous Baby Wrapz 2 the first convertible baby sunglasses with headbands and temples (arms). Our rubber frames are super comfortable and virtually unbreakable and we only use A-grade impact resistant (PC) polycarbonate lenses with 100% UV protection. We also have many other world firsts, like our new Premy Wrapz – the world’s first premature or preemie baby sunglasses and our legendary 3-year guarantee.
Why it is important for babies to wear sunglasses
Today we fully understand how important wearing sunglasses is for babies from birth until 5 years of age. We known that babies are born without chromophores in their eyes. Chromophores are very special cells that develop with age and help absorb harmful UV light. They prevent these UV rays from reaching the cornea, aqueous humor and the crystalline lens, which in turn helps prevent eye diseases such as cataracts, pterygium, actinic & droplet keratites, pinguecula and macular degeneration. By the time babies are 5 years old they will have about 80% of these chromophores. This will then offer some benefit in protecting against those nasty eye diseases. The remaining 20% of the chromophores do not finish growing until approximately 30 years of age so wearing good quality sunglasses from birth is vital.
Idol Eyes Australia is truly committed to children’s eye-care
