Choosing eyeglasses for children and adolescents

Parents need to make a number of decisions when selecting eyeglasses for their children. How can you choose the right frames? What kind of lenses are best?
Compared to adults, children have flatter noses and glasses might not rest as easily on the nose as they are supposed to. This is why when choosing eyeglasses you need to make sure that the frames fit snugly and feel comfortable. It is especially important that the arms you select actually fit the child – they should be a perfect fit and not feel too tight, as they will then start pressing into the sides. Frames should not be too wide either, as that might cause the glasses to slip down.

Aspheric spectacle lenses

Aspheric spectacle lenses are flatter in their design and therefore they are mostly used in glasses with a positive prescription. These lenses are thinner and the glasses are lighter. In addition, the side areas of glasses with aspheric lenses do not distort visible objects. You should consider that in addition to cosmetic advantages, it may take time to adapt to such glasses if you have used lenses with a spherical design, as you will be accustomed to the usual distortions that are not visible with aspheric lenses. The time it takes to adapt is individual, and can be from a couple of hours to a few weeks.
