When you discover your kids need glasses, one of the first thoughts may be how in the world will we keep them from breaking. Well, fear not, because I’ve got some tips for you!
So we haven’t had the need for glasses with our kids yet, but it wouldn’t surprise me if we did eventually. Mark needed glasses up until he got lasik, and as I’ve gotten older I can tell I will eventually need glasses myself. While I hope our kids never need them, I know our odds are most likely that 1 of them will end up with a need for glasses.
When that time comes I want to be prepared to keep the glasses clean and unbroken so we won’t have to spend all our money replacing the lenses. I talked to my Mom who had 2 children in glasses and then to my sister in law whose children recently started wearing glasses.
Tips for Kids Wearing Glasses
On The Face or In The Case
I love this little rhyme. It’s easy for kids to remember because it rhymes. It also teaches them where the glasses should be kept. Not on the table, not on the counter. If they aren’t on their face, the glasses should be in their case. This is an especially important lesson to learn if you have school aged children. My mom said she has some parents who ask that their kids not wear their glasses to recess – the problem is then they forget where they put them inside, or forget to put them back on. If they know to put them in their case, then this can be more doable.
Don’t let Friends Wear Them
I remember being a child and thinking it was cool to see what the world looked like through my friends’ glasses. Since I didn’t need them, for me everything turned blurry. As an adult, I’ve realized this was not something I should have been doing. Teach your kids not to let their friends play with their glasses. Also, remind your non-glass wearing children not to touch other people’s glasses. I feel like I have to constantly remind my children to keep their hands off.
Find Glasses your Kids Love
Kids won’t care for their glasses if they don’t love them. Let them try on a few pairs at the eye doctors to get a good idea of how they fit and what they find comfortable.
