BLOCK OUT THE RAYS

Sunglasses aren't just for the beach. They're also needed on the ski slopes--because of high-altitude exposure to ultraviolet light. This winter, see if these new offerings are easy on your eyes (pictured, from top).

Ray-Ban Junior RJ9019 ($63; www.rayban.com) Eye doctors warn you to protect your kids' eyes from the cumulative effect of UV rays. These shades block harmful light and fit the 8- to 12-year-old crowd.

Revo 3030 ($239; revo.com) These UV-blocking lenses were designed by a NASA engineer for space-shuttle portholes. Spring hinges make for a comfy fit.

Smith Factor Lightweight ($109; www.smithoptics.com) This frame comes with four sets of interchangeable, carbonic lenses with protection from the sun's rays.

SpyOptic Dallas ($125; SpyOptic.com) These women's shades come in champagne bronze. They look like something Jennifer Garner would wear while fighting bad guys between runs in the Alps.
