Seeing THE LIGHT
Did you know that children’s eyes have larger pupils and clearer lenses, which allow up to 70 per cent more UV light to reach the retina than an adult’s eye? We wouldn’t think of sending our little ones to school without sunscreen and hats. So why don’t we look after their eyes as well as their skin? This was the question TV presenter and entrepreneur Alissa Smith asked herself when filming at schools for kids show Totally Wild. So she developed a range of super durable and rigorously tested sunglasses for primary school kids. Priced at $19.95 each, the School Sunnies Australia range comes in four colours to match school uniforms and three sizes to fit little faces of all shapes and sizes, with a tough case that cleverly clips onto a schoolbag.
