Kids Prescription Eyeglasses

When shopping for kids prescription eyeglasses, you want to ensure that products are durable, affordable and will provide a comfortable and clear vision experience for your child. Kids can be rough on their glasses and their vision requirements may change quickly as they grow, both of which can result in the need for frequent glasses replacement. Marvel Optics offers a wide selection of kids’ frames and lens options in multiple sizes and colors to meet any child’s vision needs while also staying within your budget.

Flexible Frames for Comfort

Active kids need frames that can withstand frequent activity and that can bend, rather than break, when met with pressure or movement. Flexible frames are designed to move with your child to provide a forgiving fit while also offering comfort and security. Frames offering flexibility are available in a wide range of sizes, materials and colors so that you can find the best kids prescription eyeglasses for your active child.

Durable Lenses Stand Up to Heavy Use

It is no secret that kids are not always careful with delicate and expensive glasses. Therefore, it is important that lenses in kids prescription glasses are made of strong, shatter-resistant materials that can withstand heavy use and activity. Marvel Optics offers robust, kid-friendly lenses in various prescription strengths. Your child is sure to find frames they love that can be outfitted with durable lenses to help ensure their safety and comfort.

Photochromic Lenses Help Your Kids See Clearly in Any Light

Photochromic lenses are an option on kids prescription eyeglasses. These are lenses that darken upon exposure to bright sunlight and become clear again when indoors.

Kids Prescription Eyeglasses FAQs

At what age can kids wear glasses?

There is no minimum age for children to wear glasses, but there are some general guidelines that have been backed by the American Academy of Ophthalmology that can help you to make that decision. For a child between the ages of one and two, glasses are usually recommended if their nearsightedness is more than -4.00, their farsightedness is more than +5.00 with strabismus or +2.00 with strabismus, or if their astigmatism is more than 2.50. If there’s a difference in the refraction between their eyes, glasses may also be recommended.

What are the signs that my child needs glasses?

Here are some of the signs that your child may need glasses:

  • Tilting or covering one eye.
  • Sitting too close to the television.
  • Rubbing eyes excessively.
  • Frequently complaining about headaches or eye pain.

Be sure to speak to an eye doctor, so he or she can determine if your child needs glasses.

What percentage of children have glasses?

According to several studies, the number of schoolchildren in the US has been increasing, while 1 in 3 have not had an eye exam in at least two years. In 2017, the National Eye Institute reported that 42% of Americans are nearsighted (compared to only 25% that was reported in the 1970’s). And approximately 4% have severe myopia, which is a condition that can eventually lead to blindness.

Does a child with astigmatism need glasses?

Astigmatism can be treated with glasses, but it might not be needed until your child starts grade school. Some children only have a small amount of astigmatism with no nearsightedness or farsightedness, which may not require glasses. Be sure to speak an eye doctor for more information.

Why do children get astigmatism?

Astigmatism is caused by an imperfection in the way the eye is curved. When the cornea (which is the clear cover located at the front of the eye) or lens is curved instead of even and smooth, the result is astigmatism. This curvature can distort the light that passes through the eye and can cause blurred vision both at distances and at close range.
