Our Guide to Buying Children’s Glasses Frames
It can be hard to convince children to wear glasses! They always feel strange at first and even in this day and age, some kids will worry about being picked on for wearing them. Choosing the right children’s glasses frames can make all the difference, and the finding the perfect pair will encourage your child to wear their glasses as advised by our optometrists.
Choosing frames in a colour that your child likes can go a long way to making them want to wear them. A child who wants to wear their glasses will keep them on for longer and feel much more comfortable than one who is wearing them because they’ve been told to. Children’s glasses frames now come in a huge range of colours, so whatever your child’s favourite colour is, there’s bound to be something they will like.
Kids’ glasses need to survive the rough and tumble of play. Strong frame and lens material are both important for a pair of glasses to stay in one piece on even the most active child.
‘Flexible’ isn’t a word used often to describe children’s prescription glasses, but flexibility is one of the most important aspects when it comes to withstanding daily wear and tear. A good pair of children’s glasses will have a degree of flexibility, usually in the frame hinges.
