The staff at Optic House will gladly assist you in choosing a frame for your child that not only fits properly but is stylish, too. Many children’s prescriptions are complicated, and not every frame is a good match for the RX. We can guide you in choosing the best possible frame to give your child optimum vision.
When choosing a frame, you want to make sure that it is neither too wide nor narrow. If the lenses stick out past the child’s temple, then the frame is too large. We do not recommend choosing a larger frame for a child in hopes that they will grow into it.
If the child is growing, then chances are the measurements on the lenses, and the prescription has changed. This makes the child look through the incorrect centers and the wrong RX.
Choosing a metal or plastic frame mostly comes to personal preference. Although, keep in mind that metal frames with nose pads can be adjusted to fit the child’s bridge while a plastic frame needs to fit the bridge from the start as no adjustments can be made.
The licensed optician will always make sure the frame can be fitted properly before you place an order. Adjustments on Optic House frames are always complementary. We see many of the kids and their parents on a weekly basis.
Remember, most children will only wear the glasses if they like the frame as well. We recommend letting your child play a significant role in the selection process. We will try to make the experience as fun as possible.
