The Best Eyewear for Kids: Tips and Trends

For a long time, brands either forgot about the children’s eyewear or kids eyewear segment altogether, or it was just about catering to smaller face shapes. But that has changed. Kids are different. They have boundless dreams and a fearless spirit. As a result, accessories become a natural canvas for self-expression – and eyewear a vibrant palette of self-discovery.

The best eyewear for kids – tomorrow’s fashion pioneers

As a result, young trendsetters are rewriting the rules of style. The kids’ eyewear segment is booming worldwide. And, of course, it’s about more than just vision correction. As a premium eyewear and independent eyewear platform, FAVR naturally also caters to kids and teens when it comes to eyeglasses and sunglasses. And rightly so. As tomorrow’s fashion pioneers, children bring an innate sense of curiosity, vibrancy and unbridled imagination to every aspect of their lives, including their choice of eyewear.

It’s not just about the lenses that help them see; it’s about bold designs, vibrant colors, and frames that are as distinctive as the little personalities who wear them. So, join us on the eyewear playground.

6 Essential tips for kids eyeglasses and sunglasses

  1. Begin with a Proper Eye Test. A thorough eye test by an ophthalmologist is crucial for children, especially those under 8. Ensure the prescription is accurate for optimal vision correction.
  2. Perfect Fit Matters. Kids are always active. A well-fitting pair of glasses enhances their vision and stays comfortable during play. Ensure the glasses fit the eye sockets well and the frame isn’t wider than the face to avoid discomfort. Also, sporty and flexible ear pieces ensure a nice fit.
  3. Flexible and Durable Frames. Children grow quickly and need flexible, durable eyewear. This could be a 3D-printed frame, titanium, which is also hypoallergenic, or acetate – ideally with flex hinges that withstand impact and reduce the need for frequent adjustments. Talk to your local optician about the best options.
  4. Scratch-Resistant Lenses. Choose lenses with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings for clear vision during all activities. These features are especially beneficial for active kids.
  5. Keep a Spare Pair. This is a good rule for adults, but should also be taken into account for kids. Always have a backup pair of glasses at home. This ensures your child always has a functional pair, even if one gets damaged.
  6. Make It Fun. Buying glasses should be enjoyable, and your kids need some motivation. Use interesting technologies like virtual try-ons to see how different styles fit your child’s face and personality, making the process fun and engaging.
  7.  
    By considering these tips, you can ensure that your child not only sees clearly but also looks stylish and feels comfortable in their eyewear.
