Changing our Habits
At Beamers we believe that through knowledge and education we will be able to change our habits. Significant UV exposure and potential damage to eyes occurs in the mornings and afternoons at school drop-off, pick-up and sports/activity times. It’s not just the middle of the day when damage can be done.
At Beamers we believe that eye protection should be part of every child’s and parent’s mind set and daily habit. Our mission is to change behaviours, educate our fellow parents and provide a comfortable, quality product that is good enough for our kids.
The scientific evidence is out there. UV exposure contributes to eye diseases such as eyelid skin cancers, surfer’s eye (pterygium), cataracts and macular disease.
The World Society of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus has said that:
“shielding children’s eyes from excessive ambient UV radiation in direct and reflected sunlight is extremely important”
