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.
Nearly three years, two stronger prescriptions, and one broken pair of glasses later, I’m here to offer sage advice for parents of kids who need glasses.
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
