THINGS YOU MUST THINK OFF WHILE BYING CHILDREN'S GLASSES


Happy and funny frames can stimulate your child to wear the glasses. That's why many times cartoon caracters are pictured on frames (Mickey Mouse / Smurf / Billie and Bouly, Harry Potter) . But children's glasses are more than that, especially if the child is less than10 years old

  
     1) THE FRAME: "Flex hinges" (pliable hinges) indicate less line and make frames more resistant to some cascades, but in case of heavy glasses they don't give enough pressure to keep them in place. Curl Springs (read: curly brackets, which hang behind the ears) are a must for toddlers. Somethimes those play wild games and thereby lose their glasses frequently, as unlike with curly feathers . The nose of infants is still undeveloped, so there is a lack of support. The curled springs should be surrounded with plastic, if not they can provoque  nickel contact allergy.  Older children are better served with the classic hockey springs (sometimes extra bended behind the ears). Titanium frames are very light and very strong and also take back their shape after deformation (especially the titan flex frames!)
 
     2) THE ADAPTATION: The head of children is growing quite rapidly so that the dimensions change soon. a well-adapted frame means that the width of the front peace, measured between the screws of the hinge, must be equal to the width of the temples. Buying a frame "on  growth" is not wise because the centrage of the glass is not optimal, as the child grows. Nose and earsupports should be adjusted so that the glasses remain well fixed. A descending frame is bad because the child does not get optimal correction (it has to look up to much). This disturbs the maturing of the sight and can result in a "lazy eye". A  frame that is too tight can cause pain and can make the eyelashes rub against the glass so they become very greasy. The frame rests also on the cheeks, so the glass can get vaporised.

     3) THE GLASS: "Plastic" glasses are clearly recommended: they are light and can not break, so the eye can never be hurt by broken glass in case of accidents. An anti-scratch layer is however strongly recommended by plastic glasses because children mostly handle their glasses rather roughly . The optical quality of glass is then quickly lost and also the maturing of the sight.  That's why the assembly of glasses is very important: bad centering can interfere negatively the maturation of vision. However, remember that good "scratch resistant" glass can still show schratches when you handle them too rough "Scratch Free" glasses do not exist!
 
 
IMPORTANT RULE FOR CHILDREN'S GLASSES: Under the age of eight years even the smallest deviation of sight must be corrected. Otherwise this can disturb the maturing of the vision and we get a "lazy eye". A "lazy eye" can be very annoying when the other eye gets lost by an accident or an illness. If you only have 1 good eye, you would be less eager to have surgery than otherwise. That's why the insurance pays back  children's glasses, although it's only ones.  At the age of eight years the  maturation of the vision is complete and glasses are no longer necessary in case of one bad eye.  Then the child can leave the glasses behind partly or completely if the vision is good without the goggles. Covering the good eye to practice the bad eye is now redundant. You can ask for our leaflet concerning covering .

   
2 COMMENTS:
 
If your child wears heavy glasses , swimming can be annoying because your child feels lost without his glasses. You can buy SWIMMING GOGGLES with adapted dioptre. There are also goggles for other sports: skiyng ans football. Contact lenses can be an alternative to sports glasses from the age of 10 years * Children's eyes are very bright and therefore more susceptible to sun damage: CHILDREN'S  SUNGLASSES are no excessive luxury
