How do I measure my child's face size?
To measure your child's facial dimensions, use a soft ruler to measure the width of their face, the width of their nose bridge, and the distance from their eyes to their ears. These measurements will be useful when choosing the size of the glasses. It is also advisable to seek the help of a professional optometrist who can measure your child's facial measurements with professional equipment and can also determine your child's vision prescription in order to ensure the accuracy of the measurements.
How to make sure glasses are comfortable to wear?
Generally speaking, frames made of lightweight, soft and wear-resistant materials, such as TR90 plastic, are more suitable for children. Also, comfort with glasses is reflected by the fact that the frame should rest comfortably on the bridge of the nose and the arms fit snugly behind the ears without slipping or feeling compressed. Soft nose pads on the frames and adjustable temple tips on the arms will enhance the comfort of wearing the glasses.
For optimal vision correction and eye protection, choose prescription-accurate lenses with scratch-resistant coatings and UV protection to protect your child's eyes from harmful rays.
When fitting a 6-year-old with eyeglasses, their facial size proportions need to be taken into account in order to choose the right size glasses. The length, height and width of the nose bridge of the eyeglass frame should match the child's facial dimensions. If your child is not 6 years old, you can check whether children of different ages need glasses. Vooglam's 4-7 seven year old eyeglasses can be worn by 6 year old, because of the frames are worn comfortably. Of course, the most important thing is not to ignore the child's feelings, the child's experience when wearing glasses is real.
