At a very young age, many
children are already required to wear prescription eyeglasses for vision correction. And while
finding a decent pair of prescription lenses for adults is not that difficult,
choosing the perfect one for kids could be a little tricky.
We at Daniel Walters want to
make it easier for you. So here are a few things to consider in choosing the
best glasses for your kids!
1.Choose the Right Bridge Fit
Kids have smaller heads and
underdeveloped noses. That is why you should focus most of your energy on
looking for glasses with the right bridge fit.
If you want to get your toddler
glasses made of plastic frames, make sure that the bridge is built mid-level or
a lot lower than the top rims. This will allow the frames to sit comfortably on
his or her nose without sliding off all the time.
If you prefer metal frames, choose
a pair built with traditional nose pads. They usually are attached to
adjustable arms which will allow you to manipulate the placement of your frames
to sit steady.
The key is to find eyeglasses
with a bridge that can prevent the frames from falling off a child’s small
2.Pick the Right Temple Design
You also have to be very
particular about choosing eyeglasses built with a lot of support and stability
provided by the right temple design. Children tend to play a lot and run
around. Because of this, eyeglasses worn by kids often fall accidentally and
become more prone to shatter than those worn by adults.
Some glasses are made with
temples that completely wrap around the back of the ears. This type is called
“cable temples” and they are made ideally for children. It will keep the
glasses from falling or sliding off the face.
As another option, you can also
opt for glasses that come with a strap that goes around the head.
Look for glasses with spring
hinges. These hinges make flexible frames as it allows the temples to flex
outward. This is perfect for kids who still don’t have much control in the way
they put on or take off their glasses. It is also a great feature because
children tend to fall asleep with glasses on and regular hinges would not live
long with that habit.
Spring hinges are encouraged for kids who tend to play
with their eye wear a lot. This will surely save you a lot of repair money.
deserve to wear the right kind of glasses or those especially made for them. Don’t let the wrong kind
of eyeglasses get in the way of your kid’s activities. Choose the pair that’s
right for them.
