Wearing glasses makes life just a little more complicated and inconvenient for young children. In the U.S., although 1 in 20 preschoolers needs glasses, only 1 in 100 actually wears them. Two of the biggest complaints are that kids don't want to wear them and that kids break or lose them easily. We've rounded up some of our favorite products to help solve those problems.
Kid-Friendly Glass Storage: Keep your child's glasses protected by giving them a fun, kid-friendly place to store them.
Lenz Frenz: Keeping your glasses safe and secure when not in use can be tricky for kids. With one of these cute and cuddly stuffed animals from Lenz Frenz, your child can always know that her glasses are safe in the hidden case in the back to store your child’s glasses, helping them to cherish and - most importantly! - to not lose their glasses. Lenz Friends are available in six cuddly animal style - owl, bear, unicorn, monkey, puppy, and T-Rex. They also make a mini size to hold contact cases.
