How do I get my 5 year old to wear glasses?

My 5 year old son will need to wear glasses and have patching to fix his weak right eye. How do I convince him to wear the glasses and patch without a battle. He's already worried people will laugh at him.

My daughter is 6 and just had to get glasses. It helps that I wear them too. I made a huge deal of it saying how great and smart she looked too. Are there any other kids in the class that wear glasses? She had some other kids that did so that made it easier. Her teacher also wore glasses and had purple rimmed ones just like my daughter. She would wear them so my daughter would wear hers.
