Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? It’s miserable isn’t it? Now imagine that for your kids. Kids are so tough and resilient that they often just power through their symptoms without so much as a complaint. I know how frustrating it is when your eyes won’t stop watering and you can’t stop sneezing. It must be terrible for children, especially since they can’t quite articulate exactly how they are feeling.
Deepika and Manish Chadha watched their 4 year-old son suffer from pollen allergies for five months out of every year through the New York spring and summer. Their allergist recommended sunglasses to help reflect direct pollen, but some would still work its way around the top and sides. His eyes were still miserably irritated. Frustrated with the lack of solutions, Deepika and Manish decided to develop a custom solution to help protect their son’s eyes. What was born from their endeavor was chiggy & n eyewear. The idea is simple but brilliant. If pollen can slip by the top or sides of your sunglasses, close them! Chiggy & n eyeglasses do that… but with style! No, don’t worry, they don’t look like goggles.
Chiggy & n sunglasses aren’t just for pollen protection though. Anywhere your kiddos may come into contact with airborne debris or dust that can irritate their eyes would be a great place to use chiggy & n. There are more activities that fit this criteria than you’d realize! For example, dirt track races, monster truck rallys, or even a windy day at the beach. If you live in a desert climate like I used to, you’ll know how much the sand can kick up on a windy day. It can be painful and irritating on the eyes for sure. Basically anywhere that dirt, dust, or debris is airborne, chiggy & n are your solution!
The designs are modern and chic, but still functional. Part of this functionality goes beyond just the side and top shields. Kids love to run and play, so the glasses should be able to stay properly positioned to protect their eyes. They also provide UV 400 protection while being scratch resistant; kids are rough after all! This is accomplished with adjustable, moldable rubber to ensure a comfortable, secure fit. Built specifically for kids ages 4-10, these sunglasses are 95-98% effective at blocking eye allergens such as pollen, dust and dander. Chiggy & n are currently available in three colors including Ocean blue, Miles black, and Nadia pink to ensure that there is a good color match for every child.
Sore eyes can make life miserable for children and adults alike. If you want a solution that provides relief for your kids without using (or in addition to using) over-the-counter medicines, chiggy & n sunglasses are a great place to start. To learn more about them, visit the official chiggy & n website. Make sure you give them some love on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest, too! They are running a Kickstarter campaign to help get their sunglasses to a wider market so, if you want to save some cash, support the campaign to get the best price possible.
