How to Choose Glasses Frames For Kids

We know that kids often aren’t quite as excited about getting glasses as their parents because they aren’t thinking of the latest trends or looking to accessorize an outfit. But that’s not to say they don’t want to have a pair of cool glasses. For parents, functionality and durability are two of the top qualities when they are buying glasses for their kids.

When shopping for glasses frames for kids you will want to look for the following:


Plastic Frames


Plastic frames are a great choice for kids’ glasses because they are light and comfortable. Frames with thicker arms are also strong and durable, which is important since children aren’t always so gentle on their things.

Wire Rim Frames


The greatest feature with wire rim frames is that they stay in place. A small rubber nose piece will stop them from sliding down your child’s face, preventing annoying adjustments.

Cool Colours & Designs


Glasses are a fun way for kids to try something new and express themselves. Find styles in their favourite colours, characters and the latest styles and shapes – proving that kid’s glasses can also be perfectly on trend.

Proper Bridge Fit


Children’s faces obviously haven’t fully developed yet so finding glasses with a proper bridge fit is very important. Metal frames offer support through a nose piece which will keep their glasses in place. Kids want to play, not adjust their glasses, so choose a pair that allows them to do so.

Allow your child to try on several pairs of glasses that they will want to wear. Let them try on a few goofy pairs but most importantly, look for comfort and durability! At ClearlyContacts.ca we offer a wide selection of glasses for infants, toddlers, school aged children, and up.
