Other Tips for Parents Regarding Eyeglasses

  • Give your children at least seven to 10 days for their eyes to adapt to the glasses. If they still have problems — such as blurred vision or feeling as though the eyes are “pulling”— call your eye doctor.
  • If your children develop pressure marks on the nose and behind the ears, return to your eye doctor so the glasses can be adjusted to fit better.
  • To maintain the life of the glasses, teach your children to put the glasses in the case when they are not wearing them. Use soapy water and a soft cloth to clean the glasses — don’t use paper towels or tissues, which may scratch the lenses.

During National Eye Donor and Save Your Vision Month, the Children’s Hospital of Michigan encourages parents to keep their children’s eyes healthy with regularly scheduled eye checkups.
