Getting new glasses is a big change for a child. Helping your child adjust to this change involves several steps. Start by allowing them to choose a frame they love – it will make them more enthusiastic about their new glasses.
Normalize the experience. Let them know that many people wear glasses and it's an entirely normal part of life. Encourage them to wear their glasses consistently by setting up a routine.
Teach them about proper eyewear hygiene. Explain the importance of keeping their glasses clean for clear vision and the proper way to clean the lenses to avoid scratching them. With these steps, your child will be well on their way to adjusting to their new glasses.
