Early diagnosis of vision problems is crucial so that corrective measures can be implemented as soon as possible. The American Optometric Association recommends eye exams for children as early as 6 months old, with continued exams at 3 years old and right before entering first grade. After that, annual eye exams are recommended. If your doctor confirms that your child needs glasses, it’s important to know what to look for in children’s eyewear to make sure you and your child will be happy with the results. Here is a list of 3 factors to consider when choosing children’s eyewear.

Style

While children may not be overly excited to visit the optometrist for an exam, picking out glasses that fit their style and personality can be a fun experience for them. Michigan Eye Institute offers a large variety of frames and advanced lenses for adults and children. Choose from classic styles like rectangle or oval frames, or if your child likes to be up with the modern trends, try some of 2018’s most popular eyeglass styles and shapes, including browline glasses, square glasses, cateye glasses, and more!

Size

Size and fit are essential factors to consider when choosing children’s eyewear. Glasses that are too big will fall off, and glasses that are too small can cause discomfort and even pain. Glasses look best not only when they are the perfect shape and style, but also when time has been taken to make sure that they fit correctly on the face.

Durability

Children lead active lives, so their glasses must be able to keep up them. Michigan Eye Institute offers TRIVEX®, the most impact- and scratch-resistant lenses available. Light and thin in design, TRIVEX® offers a level of protection and design that is unmatched. For added protection, MEI offers a Breakage Protection Plan and a Happiness Guarantee so you and your child will walk out knowing you got the very best.
