Cocoons Sunglasses for Kids with Photophobia

Mirielle in her sunglasses

Cocoons makes polarized sunglasses designed to fit over prescription glasses. These glasses are great for kids with low vision or visual impairments who are also photophobic or highly sensitive to sunlight. With these sunglasses you can also bend the ear pieces to fit your child’s face, so even though they may seem big, they don’t fall off.

Mirielle has LCA and is very sensitive to sunlight. She loves her new sunglasses. Watch a video of her wearing her glasses here.
