    Choosing Your Child’s Eyeglasses

    Choosing eyeglasses for your child can be challenging and we aim to make it fun for everyone. Getting your child involved in the selection of their eyewear is the single most important part of this process. If they like their glasses, they are more likely to wear them.

    Our opticians will start by advising you on frame choices that best match your child’s face and prescription. We check the width of the lens to make sure the eyes are centered and they are properly placed on the bridge of the nose. We also ensure that the temples are correctly positioned around the back of the ear, which will prevent glasses from sliding down their face.

    We take a great deal of time to make sure that the frame fits their face perfectly. Glasses not only allow for better vision, but they also help maintain alignment of the eyes. If a frame does not fit well, a child may not get the full therapeutic benefit and consequently refuse to wear them.

    Our optician will also help you select the best frame and lens material based upon your child’s specific vision needs.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Will my insurance cover the cost of my child’s glasses?
    Many insurance companies in New Hampshire will cover the cost of a basic pair of eyeglasses for patients under the age of 18. Our opticians will help you find the specific benefits covered under your insurance plan.

    Do your eyeglasses come with a warranty?
    All of our children’s glasses come with a warranty that includes broken frames or scratched lenses. In addition, since kids prescription lenses often change, our warranty will cover updates when needed within one year.

    Are there any additional costs for adjustments?
    We offer free adjustment for all our glasses to ensure that they stay fitting perfectly, for even the most active of children.

    Is it really necessary to have more than one pair of glasses for my child?
    It is not uncommon that a child’s glasses may become broken or require adjustments, so a second pair of glasses will be needed when the other is being repaired. An extra pair of glasses can also be very helpful if one pair is ever lost. Be sure to ask our opticians about our kid’s packages, which include discounts on the purchase of a second pair of eyeglasses.

    What is the best way to care for my child’s glasses?
    Glasses should be cleaned daily and kept in their case when not in use. Also remember to remove them with both hands in order to prevent bending the frames.

    Do I need an appointment to choose eyeglasses or make adjustments?
    You never need an appointment to come to our optical department. You can choose your eyeglasses on the day of your appointment or come back at a more convenient time. We are also happy to fill an eyeglass prescription from an outside location. Please feel free to visit us in our Manchester or Londonderry office at your convenience.
