Arian Fartash, OD, created GlamBaby, her line of baby and children’s eyewear, in 2018. She was 9 months pregnant with her daughter, Isabella, and she wanted to help children of all ages to protect their eyes and potentially prevent future eye issues. Her desire to create this product also stemmed from her past experience in the exam room, where she often saw patients who had preventable eye diseases but who lacked the knowledge growing up to avoid the conditions they were now facing.
Dr. Fartash says that each piece is curated to ensure quality protection and prevention for our kids with lots of style. The line includes sunwear protection, blue light protect eyewear and goggles. “The blue light line has sold out six times,” she adds. “It’s a brand that doctors and parents trust over generic blue light brands that can be found on Amazon or in convenient stores.” It’s an important item for children to have as their digital device usage increases, and blue light exposure can lead to sleep and eye problems, like eye strain and redness. In addition, she says that there are currently studies being conducted to link blue light and irreversible retinal damage.
Customer favorites for kids include the Bella, Roxy and Aliyah styles, all which can be made with prescription, too. Her most popular baby styles include the Roo and Serena.
“My hope is by providing educational eye-health information and trusted products that our younger generations will keep their eyes healthy and protected for years to come and not grow up to become adults with eye problems,” Dr. Fartash shared on her website.
