(HealthDay News) -- Some children may resist wearing eyeglasses, despite the resulting improvement in vision, school work and even extracurricular sports.
The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions to help your child accept a new pair of glasses:
- Choose frames that fit well, and don't pinch, slip or feel too heavy.
- Ensure that your child's lenses are the right prescription.
- Encourage your child to wear the new glasses a little bit at a time, gradually wearing them for longer periods.
- Ultimately, make putting on and taking off glasses a part of your child's daily morning and bedtime routines.
- Encourage your child with praise every time he or she is wearing the glasses.
