Tips for Selecting Glasses or Contacts for Children


  • Allow kids to choose the frame they like.
  • Opt for plastic frames for children less than 2 years of age.
  • Ensure spring hinges on metal frames
  • Use elastic strap attached to the glasses for children or toddlers
  • High-index lenses (thinner and lighter than plastic lenses) are for children with severe eye problems
  • Polycarbonate lenses are suitable for kids who play sports. Such lenses are tough and shatter-proof.
