Kids aren’t known for taking good care of expensive, breakable objects. If you’re a parent of a little one who needs corrective lenses, you might be nervous about how your child will treat their glasses. The following tips can help your child develop good habits with their glasses, while also preventing loss or breakage. Here’s what you need to know.
Develop Good Glasses Habits
Teach your child from the very beginning which habits can help them avoid breaking and losing their glasses.
- Teach your child to wear their glasses every day, and not to take them off.
- When your child does take off their glasses, teach them to put their glasses in a location where they're easy to find.
- Pick one spot in your child’s room where their glasses “live,” so your child will know where to put their glasses at the end of the day.
Use Special Tools to Prevent Loss and Breakage
There are many tools that can prevent your child from losing or breaking their glasses.
- Strap. Straps help keep glasses on infants and toddlers who might be inclined to rip the glasses off their face.
- Bluetooth tracker. These devices attach to the inside arm of the glasses and then allow you to find the glasses with a tracking app on your phone.
- Sports glasses. If your child plays rough sports, consider buying them durable sports glasses.
- Glasses case. Some children will diligently put their glasses away in a case which makes their glasses easy to locate. Buy your child a glasses case that is brightly colored, so it’s easier to spot in a messy room.
How to Find Your Child’s Glasses
Get used to noticing where your child puts down their glasses throughout the day. When your child can’t find their glasses, return to these places first. If your child is forgetful, be sure to buy glasses in a bright color that’s easy to see.
