How to Help Your Child Adjust to Eye Glasses

Getting eye glasses as a child can be a challenging experience to navigate. Yet eye glasses are a simple solution for correcting eye sight issues.

 

According to the American Optometric Association, 1 in every 4 elementary aged children have undetected vision problems. And those vision issues can lead to other problems, such as difficulty reading.

 

Eye care for children is therefore important to tackle early. And if that means your child needs eye glasses there are ways to ease the challenge of adjusting them to glasses.

 

Everyday Eye Care

Proper eye care routines for the whole family can help preserve your eye sight and prevent eye problems.

Several everyday habits you may not think of can help address your family eye care needs.

One key habit to protecting your eyes and vision is to protect your hands. It may seem counter intuitive, but washing your hands frequently can help reduce bacteria that would otherwise get into your eyes, glass, or contacts due to all of the times your hands touch your eyes.
