KIDS USAGE OF SPECTACLES

Kids1

Children who spend multiple hours staring at digital devices are at risk of developing these vision-related problems

Some children need to wear glasses because they cannot see things that are close to them clearly, or things that are far away. So an optician or an eye doctor (ophthalmologist) will suggest that your child needs to get some glasses (spectacles) to wear

When a child wears specs for the first time these are the words they sometimes say

  1. I can see the board clearly after wearing my glasses
  2. All the words jump about in the page without my glasses
  3. Without my glasses everything was fuzzy

Kids should follow the "20-20-20" rule, when they use any digital devices.  "20-20-20" rule — every 20 minutes, take your eyes off your screen and look at something that's at least 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. It’s a simple task that relaxes the focusing and eye alignment muscles, reducing risk of many of the symptoms of digital eye strain

No one can help you see better, if you do not tell anybody that you can't see clearly

Tips for kids wearing spectacles

  • It's a good idea to always put the spectacles in a special place, so that you can always find it
  • The specs should be kept safe from younger kids and pets
  • Always use a glasses case so that you can protect them from being damaged
  • Ignore people teasing you because of your specs
  • Clean your spectacles regularly
  • Do not put your specs on the ground, or in your pocket

 Types of lenses nowadays

  • Glasses can be single focal
  • Bi-focal (two different kinds of lens in one)
  • Tri-focal (three kinds
  • Multifocal (many different levels of focus in one piece of glass or plastic)

 Here are some types

Some specs become darker in sunlight hence we don’t have to change into sunglasses when you go out door

There are some glasses which you can wear for sport, which are strong, lightweight and flexible

You could have contact lenses, which can help you see without wearing glasses

 Tips for buying specs for kids

  • Get lenses that are wide enough
  • Choose a frame made from a hypoallergenic material
  • Get durable frames for active kids
  • Silicone nose pads are great for flat nose bridges
  • Ensure the right fit

 Take care of your eyes. Check them if you have any vision problem

Any one of us might need to wear glasses at some time in our lives. Specs help us to get a clear picture of everything.  And we wear sunglasses to protect our eyes from the sun
