Need help for my 20 month old to wear her glasses??

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

My wee girl has been pescribed glasses, and is meant to wear them 24/7, she has had them for 3 weeks, and so far only wears them for as long as 5 minutes, and has already broken them twice. Does anyone have any hints or ideas to get her to wear them??

hi.You may ask optometrist help .. to tell your girl the importance to wear on the spec and also the spec handling tips .And he will check it out on the next eyes testing routine..'friendly warning" via someone is effective..hahah..=)
ps: i am optician..and we used to this way to educate kids.good luck

Ha thanks, have tried the wearing them myself, and am continuing to do that, but she just wants to wear the ones im wearing lol quite a wee monkey really. I am planning on trying the band thing when i get her glasses back from getting them fixed, havent done it yet because the optomitrist (can't spell) didnt reccomend it for someone her age, but its going to start getting very expensive very soon lol

have you tired those band that hold them on their head? or even get a pair like them for yourself and show her how much fun it is to wear them. I don't evny your task I hope she begins to wear them.
