When choosing glasses for your children, the frame is very important. If it doesn’t fit just right or your child is embarrassed to wear them, you are going to be fighting a battle each and every day to get your child to wear the glasses that they need for vision correction.
In many cases, the bridge of your child’s nose is not nearly as prominent as it will be when they get a little bit older. To help prevent the glasses from slipping down their nose, you can purchase frames that have built-up nose pads. If the glasses still tend to slip, you can always buy frames with a cable that will hook around their ears.
You also need to consider the material of the frame. Most children work well with plastic frames, but a child that participates in rough activities or just plays rough may need a bit tougher frame that has the ability to flex. Then you have to consider whether your child has any allergies, as some children are allergic to certain substances that are used to manufacturer frames, such as nickel.
You may want to consider a frame with spring hinges, as these have the ability to flex in a number of directions without breaking. You won’t have to worry about whether your child falls asleep at night with their glasses on if they have spring hinges. If your child does play sports, you may want to consider sports goggles, as these will hold up to significant impact and help prevent unnecessary injuries to the eyes.
It can be difficult to find the right pair of eyeglasses for your child, but you don’t have to do it alone. Contact us here at Performance Vision and let us help you choose the perfect frame for your child’s glasses.
