Being employed at an eyewear company I can completely understand how difficult it can be at times to choose perfect eyewear for kids. With the increasing options that are landing in the optical shops every day, it has become quite difficult to choose an eyewear. The case is even worse with kids who can be very choosy and picky with their choice. Not
only are they concerned about their likes and dislikes, they are even more concerned about the prevailing and trending styles. However, their pickiness
cannot take away the care that must be taken while choosing the right eyewear for them. Of course, things can become a bit difficult for the parents but they
can always be a helping hand with the right advice.
It might sound a bit too much, especially to the kids, but for as long as it has benefits don’t forget to give an instructional lecture to them prior to buying the eyewear for them regarding the care that is needed while using the eyewear. They must be given a good lecture on how to keep their eyes safe and protected while wearing the glasses and without them. You can always give them a few pointers on how to keep one’s eyes healthy and even if they don’t like it, whatever points they remember from the lecture would be useful for them in future.
First thing, I always recommend to people seeking an advice on types of eyewear is that they must always consult with the eye doctor regarding the suitability of the eyewear. Then comes the point where experts like me can be consulted on whether or not contact lenses or glasses will be good for your child. You must know the advantages and disadvantages of both contact lenses and glasses. Once decided, you can choose the material of the eyewear,
especially when going for eyeglasses. The choice of material should not only be based on what colors you have available in a particular material but you must ensure that your kid is not allergic to certain materials.
Go for materials that are least known for causing allergies and if your child has allergic conditions you already know what to do. Now, your child would decide the shape of the eyeglasses but you should be there to help him/her decide on this. You must have a good knowledge on what frames suit your face type or you can do an online research on this. While this might not be the most important concern for you as parents, for your child it is one of the most important matters to ponder when choosing the eyeglasses.
Colors of the frame are reflective of the personality of the person wearing them. It’s always best that you decide some bright and lively colors for your kids because kids are the liveliest creatures on the planet and they should always look bright and vivacious. Let them choose their favorite colors and if they want the glasses to be in the color of their favorite cartoon show, you should not stop them from doing so. Let them decide
these little things for them and have a personality that is completely theirs and not a personality that has been imposed on them by others.
After all these things have been considered you should have a perfect pair of eyeglasses in your hands. There are different types of glasses and you can always search them on the internet depending on the field your child is about to be a part of. You can decide the frames based on style, material, shape and type. If you are ordering online go for the retailers that provide all this information on the website so you don’t have to
keep asking questions from others or searching websites on the internet to know how to buy the right glasses.
Lastly, always keep your kids informed of the precautions and protective measures that must be taken while wearing eyeglasses and other eyewear. If they are involved in a lot of activities along with their studies, go for multiple pairs of glasses i.e. one for studies and others while playing games. Remember; eyes brighten our lives.
