Sunglasses!

Summer brings lots of outdoor activities. We try to stay protected in the sun, rash guards, hats, sunblock, etc. But did you know that your eyes can be damaged by the sun as well? And that kids are more likely to forget to protect their eyes? We expect parents to care about their eyes, after all we need sunglasses for driving in the harsh sun. But we frequently forget about the fact that our kids spend just as much if not more time in the harsh sun than we do. They often times do not understand the need to protect their eyes form the sun, and lets face it, some of them stare right in to the sun.

Sunglasses protect our eyes from the harsh glare of the sun, but the right kind of sunglasses also protect us from UV light. The Boy’s Store understands the need to protect those little eyes and carry a variety of UV protective sunglasses. They may be stylish, but they also protect!

Summer + Sun = Shades!

The sun is really bright during those hot summer months. The sun is actually closer to us in the summer, that is why the days are longer, the sun is hotter, and the rays are more dangerous. We all know it is important to protect our kids with hats, sunblock, and clothing with SPF and UPF protection. Did you also know that it is important to protect your kids’ eyes from the harsh rays of the sun? A lot of people think that sunglasses just protect us from the glare of the sun, making it easier to see outside. But they also protect us from the harmful rays that can damage our eyes. This is an important issue amongst us all, not just adults. Sometimes we see kids with sunglasses on and we think, “oh how adorable” or “wow their parents must have money to burn.” But the fact is that they are a necessary tool for sun protection. While everyone likes to be stylish, they also serve a greater purpose. Here at The Boy’s Store, we worry about the well-being of our customers.
