Did you know that kids need sunglasses more than adults? Not only are kids’ eyes more vulnerable to UV rays, experts say that approximately 50% of a person’s UV exposure in life occurs before age 18. Like any mom, we were on a quest to find that perfect pair of sunglasses for our kids, but only to find that they were either of poor quality or sky-high price tag!
We founded WINKNIKS in 2015 with designs that merge function with fashion at affordable prices. Our awesome features of polarized lenses, impact and scratch resistant lenses, spring hinges, as well as our beautiful acetate colors, gradient lens colors, and unique engraved illustrations are what set Winkniks apart from the current market offerings. Our goal is to promote individuality and greatness of every child so he or she can freely and boldly express themselves while being safe and comfortable outdoors.
Thank you for supporting our mission and being a part of Winkniks. Let us all Wink, Don’t Squint!

100% UV Protection
Protects eyes from damaging UVA & UVB rays. Experts say nearly 50% of a person’s lifetime exposure to UV radiation is by age 18. Children are more vulnerable to retinal damage from UV rays because the lens inside a child's eye is clearer than an adult's lens, allowing more UV rays to penetrate deeply into the eye. All of our lenses comply with UV400 sunglasses lens standard and block light rays with wavelengths up to 400 nanometers, offering 100% protection from harmful UVA & UVB rays.
Filters light rays that would normally enter your eyes after reflecting off of surfaces, such as swimming pool or roadway. The lenses reduce glare, hence eyestrain and fatigue, as well as enhance the clarity and color of vision. All of our lenses are polarized.
The reflective coating of mirrored lenses decrease the amount of light passing through the lens and help reduce glare, making them especially useful for conditions of sand, water, snow, and higher altitudes. And the best part, they truly hide your eyes!
Fades from darker to lighter tint. Your eyes feel comfortable over a wide range of distances and lighting conditions. Our beautiful gradient lens colors bring out the fashionista or trendsetter in you!
