Visique is making it easy to take care of young eyes.
Because 80% of children's learning is visual, it makes sense to look after their eyes from an early age. This will help them retain healthy eyes when they reach adulthood.

The dangers of UV rays
Young eyes have larger pupils, which let more light into the inner parts of the eye, including harmful UV rays. This can lead to long-term eye damage and cataracts later in life. That is why Visique recommends children be fitted for sunglasses from their first day of school.
For the fourteenth year in a row, many local Visique practices are working with local schools to give free sunglasses to new entrants to help protect their eyes from New Zealand's powerful UV rays.
Contact your local Visique to see if your school is involved in this initiative.
