Glasses: Chic Not Geek

Are you worried that you won't be cool once you have to wear glasses? Today's glasses come in all kinds of hip styles. Read on to learn more about how you can pick the right pair of glasses for you.

Are you worried because you just found out that you have to wear glasses? If you don't wear your glasses you won't be able to see everything in the classroom at school. This can present tons of problems because you cannot see the examples your teacher is writing on the chalkboard! Glasses shouldn't be something to worry about.

Fashion Fever

Glasses have actually become fashionable! In recent years, more and more teenagers have bought fake glasses. That's right; kids who don't need to wear glasses are buying frames to look hip!

This means you shouldn't feel bad if you have to wear glasses. There are a variety of styles and colors available to kids and teens since glasses have become trendy. When you start your glasses search, ask your parents if you can visit several shops before picking a pair to buy. Your parents should be happy that you want to shop around because finding the perfect frame for your face and personality may make you want to wear your glasses all the time.

Shop and Model

When you shop for glasses, make sure you actually try them on! Just like shoes, you need to find the right size frame to fit your face.

If you find a pair of frames you really like but they're too big for your head, ask the sales associate if they are available in smaller sizes. Most frame shops have a special kids and teen section with the right sizes for your face that are fun styles and colors.

Invisible Eye Power

If you are really not thrilled about the thought of wearing glasses, then contacts may be an option. However, contacts usually are not recommended for kids in elementary and middle school. This is because they can be really tricky and sometimes demand extra attention. Contacts require cleaning and maintenance. Also, they can dry out your eyes and sometimes fall out when you are least expecting it. Glasses are the easiest way to go but if you are really interested in contacts, you should discuss it with your parents and ophthalmologist.
