Eye Protection

My 2 year old son, who will most likely be diagnosed with SPD, is very sensitive to light. Is there any product or accessory, other than sunglasses, that might help him?

I had the same problem with my daughter. Driving was a nightmare if the sun hit her eyes too bright she would have complete melt downs. And she didn't like to keep sunglasses on. We kept a book in the car and my older daughter would help block the sun with it. Very challenging.

But at age three i found out my little one needed glasses, i purchased the transitions lenses from walmart as well. She had to wear them (lazy eye)it took a while but eventually she wanted to wear them and we no longer have to worry about the sunlight it's great!

There are actual glasses now. I got mine at Walmart vision center that are kind of yellow in color and get darker in the sunshine or fluorescent light. I had to buy them because I have trouble driving when it is really bright outside and my regular glasses would not change in the car. These will change in any environment. These glasses are kind of expensive but well worth it for me. Hopefully he wouldn't be opposed to wearing glasses. Good luck!
