8 Practical Tips for Parents of Kids Who Need Glasses

By Lori Garcia |

My kid was 7 when he got his first pair of glasses. After months of inching closer and closer to the TV, I finally realized he had a problem with those gorgeous brown eyes of his.

It’s a weird thing when you learn your kid needs glasses. As a grossly nearsighted mama, I was sorely disappointed to learn my boy would be joining me on the bespectacled dark side.

8 Practical Tips for Parents of Kids Who Need Glasses

Be realistic

Kids aren't well practiced in the art of caring for fragile items. Glasses can get lost, broken, scratched, or warped so keep these inevitable conditions in mind when purchasing eyewear for your kids. For unbelievably affordable replacement eyewear, my family trusts Zenni Optical for all of our eyewear needs.
