“From years of conversations with parents, I know most kids do not regularly wear sunglasses, especially kids younger than 12 years of age,” says Kaleb S. Abbott, O.D.

Realizing that kids’ sunglasses need to be more durable and harder to lose, Dr. Abbott created a solution: SunSnap Kids, sunglasses that feature “snappie” temples that—when not being worn—snap onto a child’s wrist, bicycle handlebars, backpack, car seat, and more.

All products feature 100% UVA and UVB protection, with optional polarization.

MSRP: $17.99 to $29.99
