Kids Prescription Glasses

Unfortunately, it is not always easy to know if your child’s eyes are functioning correctly. It can be especially difficult if your child is a younger age and unable to communicate that they have visual problems. We know it’s hard to determine whether your child needs kids’ glasses and how overwhelming it can feel to choose the correct pair.

SmartBuyGlasses is here to help you make the best eyewear choice for your child. With hundreds of glasses at affordable prices to choose from, you are at the right place.


When do kids need glasses?

There may be a few signs that indicate your kids are experiencing vision problems, such as squinting, tilting their head, covering one eye, rubbing eyes excessively, complaining of eye pain or headaches, and holding hand-held devices too close to their eyes. 

We encourage you to speak with our professional opticians, or head over to our Optical Center to gain expert advice on what to look out for when purchasing kids’ prescription glasses.

The first step you must take is visiting the opticians to receive an eye test, which cannot be done online. An eye test will only take 20-30 minutes, and once you have their prescription in hand, you can go online to SmartBuyGlasses and start browsing.

When you shop with us, it is easier than ever to purchase prescription glasses for kids.

Should kids wear blue light glasses?

Blue light glasses for kids are something you might feel is unnecessary at this point in your child’s life, but we recommend it as an investment for their future.

First, what is blue light? Blue light is a color in the visible light spectrum with a short wavelength, which means it produces a high amount of energy. In the past, humans were only exposed to blue light from the sun, but now we have brought blue light inside through digital screens, such as laptops and mobile phones.

Today, the average child in the US spends up to 30% of their waking time in front of a screen. Blue light from electronics is linked to problems such as blurry vision, eye strain, dry eye, tired eyes, and sleep issues. But don’t worry, SmartBuyGlasses has a solution.

Glasses for kids for computers contain zFORT® technology that helps minimize the negative side effects of blue light by blocking the wavelengths that can cause detrimental damage to the eye.

Read our top tips on how to protect your eyes against blue light here.

Invest in kids' blue light glasses today by simply adding zFORT® after choosing your pair to help your child focus on screens with a much lower risk to their eyes.


Kids’ Prescription Glasses

Once you select a pair of kids’ glasses, simply insert your child’s prescription details at checkout and select the lens type you would like.

Arise HD Clarity is our top recommendation, as it offers great value for money and top-quality lens materials. If you are concerned about protecting your child’s eyes from the sun, opt for the Transitions® lenses, which transform kids’ eyeglasses into sunglasses when they step outside. You can also add the anti-blue light coating to any lens to help further protect your child’s eyes.

If you have any questions about kids’ prescription glasses lenses, please contact our online opticians via the Optical Center or contact our customer service team.

SmartBuyGlasses aims to make buying your children’s glasses as easy and stress-free as possible. If you are still concerned your child may not like the fit of the glasses, we offer a 100-day return policy for a refund or exchange. And, if you are worried about how durable the glasses will be, we offer a 2-year warranty on kids’ glasses, so you can feel reassured you have purchased lasting, quality glasses.
