Anticipating our 20/20 editorial feature focusing on Children’s Eyewear in this issue and our upcoming KidzBiz initiative soon to follow, we decided to let our expert Research Director Jennifer Waller do a “takeover” here for Parting Glance with a timely capture of her children Ryder and Summer. Some details worth noting: Aren’t those the coolest kid names EVER! Both celebrated birthdays in July, Ryder turned 5, and Summer is now 2. Jenn tells us Ryder calls his polarized lenses magic. He has been fishing with his dad at a nearby lake in Millwood, N.Y., and his new sunglasses help him see the fish in the water. Summer wants to be just like big bro. Usually she puts them on upside down, but she managed to get them on right for this photo. We consider them both Super Sun Heroes, and Jenn as well for remembering how important sun protection is, and how that caution needs to start with young children.
