Children’s Eye Care offers reasonably priced quality children eyeglasses at a price parents will appreciate. Quality children’s eyewear should be designed to fit your child’s bridges to insure his/her best visual acuity.
- We offer the largest selection of durable pediatric frames from quality collections at a fair price.
- Impact resistant polycarbonate lenses help protect children’s eyes.
- Frames with the colors, shapes and fit that your child will love.
- We provide a frame and lens warranty program at no additional costs.
- We insure your child’s frame is fitted properly by our experienced optician.
Children’s Lens Options
- Due to their safety performance, the best and safest lens material for children is Trivex and polycarbonate. These lens materials are the safest in the optical industry, and their impact resistance meets the new ANSI Z87.1 impact standard. From little league to the major leagues, athletes who play hard need eyewear that can keep up. Polycarbonate lenses hit a home run, due to their lightweight and shatter-resistant properties.
- Additionally, polycarbonate provides 100% ultra-violet protection.
Children’s (Everyday) Eyewear Frames
Kids have a significantly more active lifestyle than most adults. Children also have developing features such as bridges that are harder to fit than adults. Features on children’s eyeglasses like spring hinges and flatter bridge designs create a dress or daily-wear frame as safe and comfortable as possible.
Since everyday glasses are not appropriate as safety wear for the variety of activities most children participate in safety sports frames are often recommended.
Proper eyewear maintenance is important for maintaining and extending the life and performance of your child’s eyeglasses. We believe it is important to demonstrate to children the proper way to put on and remove eyeglasses with both hands. We recommend and provide periodic free cleaning and adjustments to insure your child’s eyeglasses are fitting properly.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are some tips for purchasing eyeglasses for children:
- Involve your child in the process of ordering and picking up eyeglasses.
- Ask the optician to assess how the frames look on your child before placing the order, ensuring the best fit.
- Keep in mind that your child will grow in the coming year, so choose frames that are not too tight or too loose.
- During the pickup, have the optician place the glasses on your child and check for proper fit, preventing them from sliding down the nose.
- Be aware of your vision insurance policy, as some may only allow new glasses every other year. Advocate for new glasses if the prescription changes within a year.
How can I help my child adjust to their new glasses:
- Ensure the glasses fit comfortably on your child.
- Establish a daily routine for wearing glasses, putting them on every morning.
- Encourage your child to wear glasses as much as possible, allowing short breaks if needed.
- If your child frequently takes off their glasses, engage them in enjoyable activities to distract them.
- Gradually increase the time your child wears glasses each day until they wear them consistently.
What is a PD, and how do I get those numbers from you?
Pupillary distance (PD) measures the distance between the centers of your pupils. This measurement is used to determine where you look through the lens of your glasses and should be as accurate as possible – particularly in high prescriptions as well as young children. The average adult’s PD is between 54-74 mm; a child’s PD is usually between 43-58 mm.
While online vendors will tell you that it’s common for your eye doctor to measure the PD during an eye exam, that’s actually completely false. The PD is only needed when buying glasses and has nothing to do with the examination of the eyes. Obtaining the measurements of the pupillary distance has always been the responsibility of the optical selling the glasses. If we have never sold you glasses, we will not have the PD to provide you.
How do I measure my child’s PD at home?
Most online vendors offer written and/or video instructions on how to measure the PD.
