If your little one needs glasses, you might expect a fair amount of resistance when it comes to wearing them consistently (and not losing them). Here are a few tips that might help your child accept – and even love – his/her glasses!
- Get your child involved in selecting the frames. Although it might not be practicable to allow your child complete autonomy when it comes to selecting a pair of glasses, let him/her have a say in what type of glasses look and feel right. There are fantastic, kid-friendly style options that are colorful and fun enough to make a child feel comfortable and eager to show them off!
- Choose strong frames. If you have an active child, there are going to be moments where playtime could potentially put glasses in jeopardy. Fortunately, there are new, highly durable glasses that are fantastic for kids – flexible and comfortable enough for them to safely run and frolic without worrying about breakage.
- Make your child comfortable with the idea of wearing glasses. If you wear glasses, your child may be enthusiastic about wearing glasses, too. If you don’t, and if your child seems shy about the prospect of being the only member of the household wearing them, maybe get yourself a pair of non-prescription fashion frames so that you two can share the experience!
