What to Look for in Kids' Polarized Sunglasses

At SportRx, kids get the same high-quality frame and lens technology as adults. From top brands, like Julbo and Oakley, we've curated a collection of youth polarized sunglasses that will impress your kiddo with their cool looks, and you with their performance. Let's review the two main categories to consider when comparing junior frames:

Frame Technology

For playground days and the occasional tumble, impact-resistant frames will safeguard their vision and increase the frame's longevity. Our Sports Opticians recommend durable materials, like Oakley's proprietary O Matter™ or nylon, that can handle some tough love.

Lens Technology

You've already made the smart choice to embrace polarization for your child's eyewear, but not all polarized lenses are created equal. Select lens technologies that provide a high percentage of polarization with 100% UV protection. In today's lineup of the best kids' polarized sunglasses, all lens technologies block 100% of harmful UV rays.

Like the frames, you'll also want their lenses to be impact-resistant. Avoid materials like glass, and opt for more durable materials, like polycarbonate or Oakley's Plutonite®, which offers impact-protection against high-mass and high-velocity impacts.

Let's check out the frames! We'll work from smallest to largest, so your child gets a perfect fit.

Julbo Rookie 2

They'll be ready to take on their most grand adventures when wearing the Julbo Rookie 2. These 8-base wrap around sunglasses provide maximum sun protection with a wide field of vision. Integrated side-shields and thick temples further enhance peripheral protection, so they can focus on their next move distraction-free. And for when they really get moving, the Julbo Rookie 2 features leash-compatible temple tips for extra frame security.

As for the lenses, the Rookie 2 is available with Polar Junior 3 lenses that eliminate glare from reflective surfaces. Made from polycarbonate, they can withstand some rough handling and sticky fingers to stay in shape as long as your child doesn't outgrow them! The Julbo Rookie 2 is also available with prescription.

The Oakley Flak XS is a do-it-all sunglass that will have your child looking like their favorite professional athletes. It is impact-resistant with both the lightweight O Matter™ frame construction and Plutonite® lenses that feature Oakley PRIZM™ Polarized technology.
