Infants and children have unique eyewear needs. There are important fitting characteristics that must be taken into account. Nose bridges for example, are very different from an adult’s and are constantly changing. Sizing, materials and shape is extremely important. Baby’s frames should be soft and flexible as they will get pulled and twisted often.
There is sometimes a tendency to purchase frames for children with an allowance of room for them to grow. This can be a mistake if it is too oversized. You cannot protect the face as the manufacturer intended if the frame or goggle is too large. The lenses will be too big and could cause a visual blur in the perimeter if the correct lenses are not chosen. If the eyewear doesn’t fit, it will be uncomfortable and won’t be worn by the child. Vision could be obstructed from the side if the frame is too small.
