Kids and glasses: what our doctors recommend

There are many choices in lens materials and features, sometimes making it difficult to know what is best. This can be especially difficult when it comes to kid’s glasses. Here is what our doctors recommend:

1. Polycarbonate lens material. Polycarbonate is a type of plastic. It is the most impact resistant lens material available, making it the ideal lens material for active children. Polycarbonate provides an extra layer of safety for your child’s eyes. Polycarbonate lenses are also thinner than standard plastic and have 100% protection from ultraviolet light.

2. Non-glare treatment. Children are exposed to glare from fluorescent lights, computers, and hand held devices. Non-glare treatments reduce glare and reflections, helping your child see their best and reduce eye strain and fatigue.

3. Non-scratch treatment. Kids can be tough on glasses. Scratched lenses limit vision and cause glare resulting in eyestrain. At the EyeCare Centers of Aitkin and McGregor our non-glare treatments all come with a scratch resistant treatment included, providing a 1 or 2 year warranty against scratches (depending on which non-glare treatment you choose). Our opticians can provide you details on the difference between non-glare treatments.

4. High quality frames. Not all frames are created equal. A good quality frame will stand up to the demands of an active child. At the EyeCare Centers of Aitkin and McGregor we provide frames with warranties ranging from 6 months to 2 years (our opticians can provide you with details about all our frames).

5. Transition lenses. Transition lenses automatically change from clear indoors into sunglasses outdoors. If your child is sensitive to light, Transition lenses are a great option.

Glasses for kids can be functional and stylish. Our opticians will find a frame that fits well, looks great, and your child will love to wear. We can help you select the best lens material and features for you child. We love helping children see their best, and we love helping children select glasses they feel great wearing.
