Durability and Safety
While kids may want glasses frames with a specific color or brand, parents generally want something that’s going to last.
Look for kid’s frames with features such as spring hinges (which let the frame’s temples bend in both directions) and flexible frame materials (which can withstand accidents such as sitting on frames or over-bending the temples when taking glasses on and off). These durability features reduce your costs over time. Such items that improve a frame’s durability will reduce your overall costs.
Polycarbonate or Trivex lenses are the best choice for children’s eyewear. These lightweight and very impact-resistant lenses offer the best combination of comfort and safety.
