Join Eyeglass Tyler as he introduces the best sports glasses for kids! Read on to learn more about the frames.
When shopping for kids’ sports glasses, there are a few key features to keep in mind. Let’s review what makes a standout frame for your child’s eyewear:
Safe lenses and frames: When your kid slides into second base or dives across the volleyball court, you want to ensure their eyewear is durable, impact-resistant, and up for the challenge. Safety-rated frames and lenses will safeguard their vision and give you peace of mind as you watch them give it their all.
Optimal eye protection: Frames with a wrap around design and large lenses provide exceptional eye coverage. The wrapped design helps block out wind, debris, and harmful rays, while large lenses shield eyes from excessive light.
Comfortable fit: A comfortable fit is key when your kid is working up a sweat. Rubber grips on the temples and nose pad keep the frames secure, but also provide comfort throughout the game. Strap integration is an additional feature that guarantees a stable, snug fit.
