Hi ladies, hope you dont mind me posting. I am trying to get some info for my son and not sure where to turn so I am posting this in a few places. Alycia (C&K'sMama) suggested posted here. Thank you for reading this.

I just found out yesterday that Alex needs glasses. He is 22 months old. Does anyone have any advice on what to look for in toddler glasses? I have never had to deal with this before so I am very lost!! Any input would be great! Thanks!!

Hi! I have no more advice than I already said, but I wanted to say welcome! I know Ava (at least, I think there are more with glasses here) rocks her little glasses, so I hope they can be of some help

Ava has been wearing glasses since she was 6 mths old. I've always had luck with the little childrens glasses cords that go around the head to prevent the glasses from falling off. We've used different styles of glasses and I haven't found much difference there. Make sure the fit is very good!

Good luck!

Thank you, tasha_mae, for my siggy!

Avery has glasses but uses them as back up not all the time. She does contacts all the time.

What3ever you decide on makes ure you get the warrenty, a toddler is prone to break their glasses get it on frames and lenses.
One that many people like for youngin like ours is no hinge ones. they are no screws or hinges to be broken on little grabby hands that throw and stomp lol. One popular brand are the miraflex ones.
