What are some tips for getting new glasses for your child?

ANSWER

  • Fit the frames so they’re comfortable.
  • Get the prescription right. If your child complains they can’t see well, go back to your optician or eye doctor for a recheck.
  • Have your child wear the glasses for short periods of time, and then slowly keep them on for longer stretches.
  • Help your child make a habit of putting on the glasses in the morning and taking them off before bed.
