Right Eyeglasses for Kids

When your little one’s eye doctor says they need glasses, you want to be sure they pick a pair that suits their needs. How can you do that? With the tips provided below. Our optometry team at Athens Family Vision Clinic serving Athens, GA, know a lot about finding the right eyeglasses for kids.

Get Your Child Involved 

You want your child to feel confident wearing their glasses, so it may be important that they be involved in the process. Let them point out some that they like so you’ll have an idea of what style to look for.

Go for Durability 

It’s no secret that kids aren’t the most gentle creatures when it comes to property. Fortunately, the eye care industry understands this. Both metal and plastic frames made for kids may be able to mitigate the risks.

However, you might want to go for glasses with spring hinges. These allow for a much bigger stretch – a great thing when your child decides to handle the frames roughly. You can choose frames that wrap around the back of the year, providing less of a chance that the frames will fall off on the playground.

Consider Allergies 

If your child is allergic to any type of metal, it doesn’t mean that you’ll have to avoid metal frames. However, you do need to mention this to the eye doctor so that he or she can point you toward hypoallergenic vision care options.

Ask an Eye Doctor on Our Team about Size 

Glasses come in all shapes and sizes, so finding some to fit your child’s face won’t be a problem. The trouble can come in at the bridge since they have small noses. You’ll likely need to be a pair with a very small bridge or nose pads.

Additionally, keep in mind that if they have a strong prescription, their lenses will be thicker. You’ll want to find a smaller pair of frames to prevent their glasses from looking too large. This might impact their confidence. You can ask a vision care specialist on our team for recommendations on shape and size during pediatric eye exams.
