Where do kids hide their glasses?

Children in glasses are ADORABLE! We all know that! But what many people don’t know are the struggles with having a child in glasses. For example how hard it is to actually keep those glasses on your cute child’s face!

For example, here is our cute little guy Scott. He has been in glasses since he was about 8 months old. He patches daily and also wears a contact lens in one eye.

Scott is VERY good about wearing his glasses but he has his moments, like all kids do! Very quickly Kids can go from cute to throwing a fit! Take this for or example….. Kids who wear glasses, just have an extra thing to throw fits with. (oh, how thankful I am for Miraflex glasses and how indestructible they are!)

ahhh

When he was little they were a fun toy to play with…

And as he got older they were a way to rebel…..

And lets not forget what happens to the glasses when you get into the car….

To say the least, glasses on a child are not always easy.

Kids can also be little Houdini’s who can make things magically disappear. Such as an expensive pair of glasses! Makes your heart skip a beat when they walk into a room without their glasses and you have no idea where they put them! Ahhhh…. Over the last 3 years I have spent my fare share of searching for hidden and lost glasses. Lets look at a few examples…
