If your kiddos spend a ton of time in front of screens, protecting their eyes from blue light damage is smart.

When it comes to glasses for the younger set, look for a pair that utilizes a flexible material like silicone at key “breaking” points like the temple joints. It’ll save you money in the long run if you don’t have to replace broken glasses.
