    Sunglasses FAQs

    It is recommended for babies to start wearing sunglasses as soon as they are born, whenever they are outside and exposed to the sun. However, babies should be kept out of direct sunlight until they are at least six months old. It's also important to remember to keep the sun shade down on your pushchair and ensure your little one wears a sun hat wherever possible.

    People tend to opt for larger frames for sunglasses than they do with traditional glasses. This is because they offer more coverage and whilst they’re a necessity they can also be used as an accessory.

    • Look for high UV protection which will protect your kids' eyes.
    • If you love the water or snowy climates choose polarised lenses.
    • Opt for a quality lens you know will last from a brand you can trust, that’s us by the way!
    • Choose glasses that block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays (like Babiators do!)
    • Make sure they cover a good proportion of your child’s eyes to offer full protection.
    • Buy durable shades, they will need to last!
    • Give your child the choice, they are the ones that are going to wear them.

    Polarised sunglasses are useful if you're looking to reduce glare for your kids, which occurs when light bounces off surfaces. These work best in snowy landscapes, on sunny holidays or near water where glare is of real risk. Polarised lenses don't protect eyes any differently than non-polarised lenses.

    All Babiators frames are made of a soft and flexible therma plastic rubber which makes them super comfortable and virtually indestructible. Our lenses in our original and screensavers styles are made from impact and shatter resistant polycarbonate, whilst our polarised lenses are made from TAC (Tri Acetate Cellulose).

    Our sunglasses are available in sizes 0-2 years, 3-5 years, and 6 years+ meaning you can find the perfect fit for your little one. If your child is between sizes we recommend sizing up. You can use our size guide to measure up your kids for their sunnies here or find specific measurements on each product page.



    Children's eyes let in up to three times more annual UV radiation than adults, this is because they have larger pupils. Their eyes are still maturing and therefore it is super important to protect them against harmful UV's and keep them out of direct sunlight as much as possible.

    Opt for original lenses for day-to-day use unless you spend a lot of time around water where you made want to eliminate the risk of glare.

    Babiators are Rx-able for certain prescriptions (-4 to +4). It's at the discretion of the optician. The lenses are removable/replaceable.
