If your kid plays sports with everyday glasses, chances are you’ve had to deal with broken frames. And even if your kid doesn’t play sports, glasses are easily broken from everyday activities. To preserve your peace of mind as well as your wallet, check out our list of the sturdiest glasses for kids.
Buying Durable Kids’ Glasses
No pair of glasses is truly unbreakable, but here are some things to look for to preserve the longevity of your kid’s glasses.
- Plastic frames
- Straight temples
- Spring hinges
- Rubberized grip on the nose and/or temples
- ASTM F803 rating
These contribute to a durable pair of glasses, but like we mentioned, no glasses are 100% indestructible. That being said, here’s our list of the strongest ones.
Oakley Crosslink XS
One of Oakley’s most popular eyeglass frames in a small size for kids! The Oakley Crosslink XS is a good option for those active kids who want a pair of glasses that can stand up to the challenge and not slip around while playing sports. The straight and slim, adjustable temples help them stay on the face, and the integrated nose pads provide increased comfort.
Oakley Airdrop XS
Like the Crosslink XS, the Oakley Airdrop XS is a scaled-down version of an Oakley favorite. This features the same durable and lightweight O-Matter frame and a Three-Point Fit for maximum comfort. Spring hinges lend themselves to the overall durability, and have the added bonus of accommodating a growing face.
Oakley Field Day
The Oakley Field Day helps your kid make a statement with a selection of vibrant colors they’ll love. With the O-Matter frame build, grips on the temples, and integrated nose pads, your kid is sure to have a…field day!
Wiley X Youth Force Collection
If you want the most durable, the least breakable, and the best glasses for your kid playing sports, we recommend the Wiley X Youth Force line. It includes various frame sizes ranging from young children to adults, and styles from sports goggles to regular eyeglasses. They’re all ASTM F803 approved to be able to handle high-impact sports activity. And best of all, they’re very Rx-friendly and can handle most any prescription.
