Kids love to dress up as their favorite superheroes and entertainment icons so incorporating a fun theme into the eyewear experience is a great idea to help them get on board. Start small by suggesting they wear their pair for a short time at first, then slowly increase how long they spend in them – soon wearing their specs will become second nature. Letting them pick their pair is also a wise move and with so many fun frames available, they’re sure to find their favorite frame! Depending on their age, it can also be motivating to see parents or other people they look up to, in cool glasses, so your odds of your kids wearing their glasses are higher if they see how cool YOU look in them on a daily basis!

That depends. After all, everyone’s eyesight’s different. The reason your child has been given a prescription is to improve their vision and the fact that kids’ eyes are always developing means there’s a good chance it’ll get better with age. The best thing to do is follow your eye doctor’s orders and suggestions and ensure they wear the recommended eyewear when needed. For more information about your child’s eyesight, ask your eye doctor or find one near you.
Most kids will be self-conscious when it comes to their first pair of eyewear and understandably so. That’s why it’s a good idea to involve them in the process of picking a pair that suits them. It could be a certain color they go for or maybe they’ll ask about a similar style to yours. The best way to go about it is to make sure they’re happy with the look and feel of their frames, as once that’s settled on, the lenses will take care of the rest!
Kids’ eyeglasses should be slightly wider than their face for a snug fit, leaving about a finger’s width between the temples and the side of their head. If the frame is too loose it could cause their glasses to fall off during play or keep slipping down their nose. The temples of their glasses should fit securely behind their ears but not so tight that they’ll cause discomfort. Their eyes should be centered in the lenses of their pair which you can achieve by finding out their pupillary distance (PD).
