My son (almost 5) went to the optometrist yesterday and his glasses should be in next week. I don't know much about caring for glasses. So, if your children have glasses what are the rules for taking care of their glasses?
Oh and because I think he's ridiculously adorable...
Eh, at the most I'd say get a hard case to put them in at night since he's so young. They'll give you these soft clothes to clean them but I always just use my shirt...most places now can put a protective coat on the lenses to minimize scratches so they don't get scratched easily.
Yes definitely get a hard case for storage. Also get a cloth for cleaning them rather than scratchy tissues. Teach him how to use the sides to put them on and take them off rather than grabbing the front.
My 6 yr old son has been wearing glasses for about 3 yrs now. We do not really have any specific rules, except that when he takes them off for some reason he has a certain spot to put his glasses so they do not get lost or broken. Other than that I just remind him to be careful with them.
my 11 year old daughter has two pair of glasses and she has a case for each and she cleans them regularly with the cloth. I told I expect her to be extremely careful and so far so good. she got her first pair when she was 9 (those are for reading) and she got her second pair just before her 11th birthday (those are for distance).
