Choosing Eyewear for Children

Searching for the right pair of eyeglasses for your child can be a daunting task.  I know personally because my eight year old needed glasses earlier in the year, I had no idea what to look for other than what might draw her interest.  I worried about the stigma she might feel having to wear glasses for the first time so my idea was to ensure she was happy.  After now realizing they might be too tight for her, I would have been better equipped had I knew a little more about choosing eyewear.  All About Vision has a great article on choosing the correct pair ranging from lens thickness to fashion to everything in between.  Once you are armed and ready to visit the eye doctor, you get to help your child figure out fashion over practicality.  

Among some of my favorites are these from Revolution Kids, Lafont and Guess Kids:


There are not many options to jazz up glasses but there are things such as choosing a great frame along with Ficklets for adding charm hugger wow as an eyeglass accessory for kids glasses.  Ficklets provide a great selection of flowers, exotic animals, pets and many others, it might give your children the extra nudge to love their glasses.

No matter what frame they wear, kids are just adorable in glasses.
