Safety for children’s eyes
Our eyes are precious and sensitive, and they therefore need special protection – and children’s eyes even more so.
- Do not expose your child's eyes to any unnecessary risks. Ensure your child always wears protective goggles when doing any activities where dust, splinters, shavings or droplets of liquid are produced, e.g. in handicraft work. Concentrated jets of liquid can also pose a danger. A pair of sunglasses can help prevent a jet of water from a water pistol from reaching the eye.
- Protect your child's eyes with a good pair of sunglasses that offer 100% protection against harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation. It is extremely important that children’s eyes are shielded from the sun, otherwise reddening, itch or even inflammation may result.
- Avoid exposing your child to caustic or aggressive substances, e.g. acids and leaches, or when mixing or applying glues and adhesives or coating materials.
- Shield your child's eyes against glare or harmful radiation – during welding work for instance, or when working with a laser. These can lead to lasting damage to your child's eyes.
- Just like protective headgear, sports spectacles can protect your child's eyes against injury and irritation during sporting activities such as cycling, swimming or skiing.
