Pediatric Glasses

[Information] / [Glasses] / [Eye Problems] / [Eye Safety] / [Myths]

Nothing is more important than making sure that our children have the best possible vision. It is our job to make sure that the correct diagnosis is made, and that we give the highest quality care. The work we do can make the difference between good vision and lifelong vision loss.

Eyeglasses for Children:

Children wear eyeglasses for many of the same reasons that adults do, to improve vision. But they may also wear glasses to prevent and treat amblyopia or "lazy eye" or other eye muscle problems.

The most common vision problems treated with eye glasses are:

  • Myopia
  • Hyperopia
  • Astigmatism
  • Can babies wear eyeglasses?

    Of course! Baby's eyes can be tested even before they can give a verbal response. The ophthalmologist dilates the baby's eyes, then look inside with special instruments that determine the proper eyeglass prescription.

    What kind of glasses are best for children?

    We recommend plastic lenses and plastic frames especially those frames designed with active children in mind. And, children may also need additional pads or straps to keep the glasses properly positioned.

    Additionally, children who have good vision in only one eye should wear safety glasses for protection at all times, even if they do not need glasses otherwise. Eye care for children generally addresses two categories: injuries or physical defects.
