Easy Ways to Make Eyeglasses Cool to Kids


What happens if you recently found out that your kid needs a pair of eyeglass frames? If you’re like most parents, you probably encountered some resistance from your child upon taking him or her to one of the local eyeglass stores in order to get an eyeglass prescription. The thought of becoming “nerdy” doesn’t appeal to kids – so how do you make them seem cool?

First, try glasses online using a virtual mirror. You can upload your kids picture and the two of you can play around with different looks. You can have fun with this experiment because you can try on as many frames as you want at the computer and it becomes more of a game. If your child finds a pair of glasses he or she likes, you can easy order them right then and there – as long as you have the prescription with you!

Show them pictures of kid-friendly celebrities who wear eyeglasses. Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers wears glasses, as do Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato! This will help build their confidence because they will see some of their favorite actors and singers wearing glasses – which make them seem cooler. If you child likes a certain type of frame that their favorite star wears, encourage them to try the glasses online using the virtual mirror.

Another tip stems from making them feel comfortable in their own accessories. While not everyone can afford designer glasses, the idea behind the designer label can help a child or teen feel more comfortable in their look, so try using glasses as an accessory in a child’s wardrobe.
