Selecting The Best Eclipse Glasses For Children And Teens
What Type of Eclipse Glasses Do We Need?
Kids and teens are naturally curious about the world around them, so it is only natural that they will be very interested in viewing a solar eclipse. With the August 12, 2017 eclipse fast approaching many schools will spend time in teaching kids of all ages about eclipses.
One of the big concerns with children and teens watching a solar eclipse is their lack of understanding of the damage that can occur to the eyes. Teachers and parents need to make sure that kids are not viewing the eclipse without the proper eye protection. Be sure to use the best eclipse glasses from American Paper Optics to protect their eyes fully. Our glasses are "one size fits all" which makes them a great option for everyone from adults to the younger children.
