When it comes to looking for a pair of sunglasses, a lot of children are looking for one thing.
"I look for sunglasses with bright colours, and I like ones that are bigger," explains Brooke Bolduc from Riverview, New Brunswick.
But the Canadian National Institute for the Blind is trying to get kids to think about far more than just style.
They're visiting schools across the country to spread the word about proper sun protection for your eyes. The program is called Shades of Fun.
"What is most concerning about that is that 75% of most vision loss is either preventable or treatable," says Shari Lovelock, Director of Development for CNIB.
That includes vision lost due to sun exposure.
These students are being taught that a pair of sunglasses should protect your eyes from 99% of both UVA and UVB rays -- and should be worn every day of the year.
So when you're searching for sunglasses, you want to look for a sticker that says "UV400" -- that will give you that protection you are looking for.
The Shades of Fun program offers a real eye-opener about vision loss for kids across the country.
The program is also giving back to local communities. CNIB has team up with Joe Fresh to help raise money for people who are blind or partially sighted.
Schools right across the country can get involved to raise money for the Shades of Fun program by logging onto their website, shadesoffun.ca.
Students that get involved not only help out people in their locally community, but they also learn how to protect their eyes, before it's too late.
Most kids have never even considered what is might be like to lose their sight. "It kind of scares me to even walk with my eyes shut, so I would not be good with that at all." says Kylie Cormier.
